Son gets 35 years in dad's fatal stabbing

GREENCASTLE, Ind. – A 22-year-old central Indiana man who pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in the stabbing death of his father has been sentenced to 35 years in prison.

The Banner-Graphic reports (http://bit.ly/1ikBPE3 ) Thomas Badgley of Greencastle was sentenced Friday by Putnam Superior Judge Denny Bridges to 40 years in prison, but the judge suspended the last five years of the sentence.

Badgley pleaded guilty in December in the stabbing death of 53-year-old Tommie Dale Badgley on Sept. 12, 2012.

Testimony indicated the father was at his son’s house because he thought his son had overdosed on pills and was trying to get him to a hospital.

Bridges said the fact Badgley’s father was unarmed and was there to try to save his son’s life were factors in the sentencing.
