Dinh Bowman to be sentenced today for ‘thrill-killing’
SEATTLE (AP) — A 32-year-old man who killed another driver in Seattle in what prosecutors called a random thrill-killing faces more than 25 years in prison at his sentencing Friday.
Dinh Bowman was convicted last month of first-degree murder in the August 2012 shooting of Yancy Noll, a wine steward who was driving home.
Bowman testified Noll had thrown a wine bottle into his convertible and hit him on the head in a road rage incident in north Seattle’s Roosevelt neighborhood.
Prosecutors told the jury that Bowman was a student of murder who read manuals on how to kill and get away with it.
