Judge Sentences Norman To 30 Years On 2nd Degree Murder Charge

A Laclede County man appeared before 26th Circuit Judge Aaron Koeppen yesterday. He was sentenced to 30 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to the death of his boss in November of 2020.

Laclede County deputies arrested 31-year-old Shane Patrick Norman, of Eldridge, in March of 2021 for the death of 33-year-old Nathan Andrew Young of Webster County. Norman pleaded guilty on June 24th to a second-degree murder charge.

Norman was an employee of Youngs at a welding business. Authorities recovered the remains of Young in a creek bed just off Kinfolk Road. His head, hands, and feet had been removed. They believe Norman tried to burn the body. The coroner confirmed Young died from a gunshot wound to the head.
