By Larry Rowell

While the jury deliberated for four hours to render a guilty verdict in the 2015 death of Robbie Howell, it took less than 10 minutes for them to recommend defendant Lesli Carol Penrod’s punishment, 10 years in the penitentiary. The jury found Penrod guilty of second-degree manslaughter.

Penrod was on trial in Casey Circuit Court, accused of murder when she hit Howell with her truck Aug. 20, 2015, killing him.
