  • Jacob Hoyt received a life sentence with the possibility of parole in 20 years Friday morning in Butler County District Court.
    Hoyt was charged with the murder of Augusta resident Loyce Cody.
    The sentence was part of a plea agreement reached that changed the charge to felony first degree murder, rather than the hard 50 sentence initially sought.
