LONDON, Ky (WEHT) – Forty-two years – that’s the sentenced handed down to a convicted killer pardoned by former Kentucky governor Matt Bevin.

Patrick Baker was convicted of federal murder last year. He was freed from prison in 2019, when former Governor Bevin pardoned him for the slaying of Donald Mills. But now, he is heading back to prison.

Earlier this week, the U.S. District Court in London sentenced Baker to 42 years. He was facing a maximum of life in prison.
