Kansas man sentenced to 15 years in beating death of St. Joseph man


ST. JOSEPH, Missouri — A northeastern Kansas man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison in the beating death of a Missouri man whose body was found below a cliff.

The St. Joseph News-Press (http://bit.ly/1CHcjrM ) reports that 50-year-old Timothy Osborne of Atchison, Kansas, was sentenced Friday in the April 2014 death of 57-year-old William Howard Paige Jr. Osborne pleaded guilty in May.

Paige was from St. Joseph, Missouri, where Buchanan County prosecutors charged Osborne with voluntary manslaughter. St. Joseph police said the investigation showed Paige was killed during a dispute. An autopsy found that Paige died of blunt force trauma to the head.

Authorities found Paige's decomposed body in May 2014 near the bottom of a park's lookout area.
