From Larry Smith, 92.7 FM the WAVE, to The WAVE (c) story

An Adair County Circuit Court Jury of eight women and four men has found 43 year old Jeffrey D. McGaha guilty of murder and the jury has recommended a 20 year sentence.

After over six hours of deliberation, an Adair County Circuit Court Jury found Jeffrey D. McGaha guilty of murder.

The verdict came at approximately 9:30pmCT, Thursday night, December 8, 2011, according to The WAVE reporter Mike Wilson, who covered the trial on the scene in its entirety.

McGaha is incarcerated in Adair Regional Jail. Formal sentencing is scheduled for 10amCT, January 31, 2011, in Adair Circuit Court.

The case grew out of the June 7, 2011, death of 61 year old Michael Earl (Bull) Cowan, which occurred approximately 6 miles east of Columbia.

Special Judge James Bolen presided.-LARRY SMITH, Shoreline Communications.
