A Magalia man has been sentenced to 50 years to life in prison for murdering his father.
Christopher McCarty was sentenced Friday afternoon, after being convicted in March of shooting and killing 55-year- old Michael McCarty during an argument in August of 2011.
It took two trials for a conviction.
The first ended in a hung jury after a day and-a-half of deliberations.
The second jury deliberated for less than five hours before returning a guilty verdict. ###
