Muncie man who tried to kill ex-girlfriend with bomb gets 101 years in prison
MUNCIE, Ind. — A Muncie man who tried to kill his former girlfriend with a homemade bomb has been sentenced to 101 years in prison.
The Star Press reports 40-year-old Lionel Ray Mackey Jr. received a maximum sentence Monday from Delaware Circuit Judge Linda Ralu Wolf on convictions from two separate trials. Wolf said Mackey was a menace to any woman he became involved with.
Prosecutors say Mackey tried to kill his former girlfriend in December 2016 with a bomb left at her Muncie home after she ended their relationship.
