VERNON - A Lamar County has been sentenced to life in prison for attempted murder for his actions involving kidnapping a woman from a store in Hamilton.
Marshall Lee Gray, 33, Vernon, pled guilty to attempted murder on Oct. 28 in the 24th Judicial Circuit Court held at the Lamar County Courthouse in Vernon and was sentenced to life in the custody of the Alabama Department of Corrections, according to a press release issued by Andy Hamlin, District Attorney of the 24th Judicial Circuit Court.
Gray faced multiple charges for the June 2018 kidnapping and assault of Sherri Goggans, a Novato, Calif.-woman visiting Hamilton.
Gray had been released on probation from Bullock Correctional Facility in Union Springs just days before the incident, where he had served eight months of a 20-year/38-month split sentence for first-degree rape.
