(LaPorte County, IN) - A Long Beach man convicted of killing his wife is inching closer to actually serving jail time. John Larkin’s appeals are running out.
In 2019 Larkin was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter related to the 2012 shooting of Stacey Larkin. Back in September, the Indiana Supreme Court overruled the acquittal issued by the state Court of Appeals last year.
While Larkin continues to appeal, he has asked to delay serving his two-year prison sentence. On Tuesday, a judge in LaPorte County denied the request and ordered Larkin to turn himself in to LaPorte County Jail by February 1.
