A Danville man has been sentenced to natural life in prison for killing a man four years ago. Circuit Judge Nancy Fahey sentenced 42-year-old Theron Price for the shooting death of William Newbern III. The judge said the life sentence is necessary to deter others. She called Price’s actions – shooting Newbern three times in the back– ‘’despicable’ as she passed the sentence.
Newbern’s body was found in a yard in the 500 block of North Griffin Street, about a block from his apartment, in November of 2014.
