Teen sentenced for killing father

SOUTH BEND — A South Bend teenager who killed his father two years ago in a dispute over driving privileges was sentenced to 31 years in prison.

Now 18, Devon R. Moore was given the maximum sentence last week in a Pacific County court.

The Daily News reports he pleaded guilty to murder with a firearm in the shooting death of Timothy Moore.

Moore told his son he could have a car as long as he stayed on the honor roll. But, when he didn’t make the honor roll in November 2010, they quarreled.

Prosecutors say Devon Moore shot his father four times as he slept, buried the body in a remote area and told people his father was missing. Woodcutters found the body.
