John White Sentenced in Rebekah Gay Murder

Posted: Updated:

John White is going to prison for a long, long time for the murder of 24 year old Rebekah Gay.

Today the entire case came to an end with an Isabella County judge sentencing white to at least 56 years and three months in prison for the murder.

The sentence stretches to a possible 85 years.

At 55 years old, if he only served the minimum sentence he would be 111 years old when he was released.

Rebekah's family voiced a call for the death penalty in Michigan today but knowing the near impossibility White would ever be free again, they are satisfied with the judge's decision.

9&10's Eric Lloyd and photojournalist Jeff Blevins were in court today for the punishment and have more details.
