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.

    Now, he would get out in 22.5 (25 years *90%) based on Washington DOC policies (www.doc.wa.gov/policies/showFile.aspx?name=35010)

    His version of events seemed so farfetched and the fact that he tried to hide all the evidence, made him look guilty from the beginning. What a weirdo.

    If you are not aware of her husband being convicted of murder, then Google the “48 Hours Mystery” episode and watch it and her DESPICABLE behavior & support of her smug & evil husband.

    Since his conviction, she has changed her name (but not her ways) and the public needs to know her new name and what scum-bag company that now employs her.

    We need to boycott this company and let them know that they are employing a co-conspirator in a first degree murder.
