A New Albany man has been sentenced to life in prison for killing his father. 

21-year-old Jonah Lake killed Kevin Lake at their home in 2017, then staged a home invasion as a cover-up. A motive is still not clear.  The father, a former trustee of Bowling Green State and Ohio Universities, lost his license after pleading guilty to running a pill mill.
