Appeals court trims sentence for Indiana man in bomb case

MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) — The Indiana Court of Appeals has overturned one of several convictions and trimmed the sentence for a central Indiana man who tried to kill his former girlfriend with a homemade bomb.

The Star Press reports the rulings in the case of 40-year-old Lionel Ray Mackey Jr. of Muncie will apparently reduce his prison term from 101 years to 94½ years.

A jury found him guilty of attempted murder in September after a separate jury earlier found him guilty of five other felony charges . The appeals court overturned Mackey's conviction for an intimidation charge, saying it's based on the same evidence that led to the attempted murder conviction.

Prosecutors say Mackey tried to kill his ex-girlfriend in 2016 with a bomb left at her Muncie home after she ended their relationship.
