UPDATE: Man Sentenced After Beating Man & Burying Him Alive

The man accused of robbing, beating and burying a co-worker alive in Rockcastle County has been sentenced to 14 years in prison.

Jason Gambrel had been charged with attempted murder.

But he recently pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of assault.

Deputies said last July, Gambrel stole $700 from Derek Kissee, beat him and buried him in a limestone rock quarry.

But investigators said two people heard Kissee, and he was saved.
