An Aurora man found guilty of beating his 84-year-old grandfather to death has been sentenced to 72 years in prison. The beating occurred after an argument that started over what to have for to dinner.
Arapahoe District Judge Phillip Douglass sentenced Jason Vanbommel, 34, to 72 years with the Department of Corrections. In April, a jury found him guilty of reckless manslaughter and first-degree assault of an at-risk adult, among other charges. First-degree assault on an at-risk adult is a Class 2 felony, reckless manslaughter is a Class 4 felony.
