A Salem man convicted of killing a Doddridge County man in 2011 will spend the rest of his life in prison.
Prosecutors say Murray and co-defendant Clayton B. Collins killed 20-year-old Thomas Ray "T.J." Blankenship in December 2011. Blankenship's body was found in a shallow grave near Arden in Barbour County.
Collins is serving a 40-year sentence after pleading guilty to second-degree murder in 2013.
