Man Gets Life For Brutal Barry County Murders

It’s two life sentences plus 177 years in prison for a man who shot and killed the mother of his children and her grandfather.

40-year-old Christopher Paschall from Springdale, Arkansas, was sentenced for killing Casey Brace and her grandfather, Herbert Townsend, in Barry County in January 2015.

He kidnapped his two-year-old daughter after shooting Brace and Townsend and drove to Arkansas where he was arrested a few hours later.

Townsend was able to tell authorities what happened before he died.

The life sentences run consecutively, along with the additional prison time, meaning Paschall will spend the rest of his life in prison.
