ERLANGER, Ky. – Timothy Grissett, a man convicted for the 2012 murder of Tasha Nichole Campbell in Erlanger, Ky. received a 25 year prison sentence Wednesday.
Kentucky Commonwealth Attorney Rob Sanders made the announcement.
Grissett, from Cleves, Ohio, fled to South Carolina where he was eventually apprehended by authorities and transported back to Kentucky to stand trial.
On July 1, 2012 Erlanger police received a call from a concerned resident about suspicious activity in the 3100 block of Hulbert Avenue. It was there that officers found Campbell’s body in what appeared to be an abandoned home and made the connection to Grissett via witness interviews.
"We've never had anything like this happen before," said 50-years Hulbert resident Jane Reynolds at the time of the discovery.
