Beck’s Sentencing

Prosecutors said that on a springtime Sunday morning last year, during an argument over coffee in their kitchen in northwest Roanoke, David Tyrone Beck, 56, attacked Allicott, 45, and used several different knives to stab and cut her more than a dozen times. At Beck’s sentencing yesterday, Roanoke Circuit Court Judge William Broadhurst sentenced Beck, 15 years on the two charges, with another 15 years in suspended time. After he’s released, he’ll be placed on indefinite probation.
