Convicted Jefferson City killer sentenced to life in prison

A 36-year-old Jefferson City man who was convicted of shooting and killing a father of six was sentenced in court Wednesday.

Calvin Hutson is facing life behind bars plus 30 years for 2nd degree murder, 1st degree robbery, armed criminal action and unlawful possession of a firearm as a prior convicted felon.

“Today, the judge sentenced the defendant to a life in prison sentence for murder in the 2nd degree, 15 years consecutive to attempted robbery and also 15 years consecutive on the armed criminal action court and seven years concurrent in the possession of a firearm of a felon and the state feels like that was an appropriate sentence given the defendants lengthy prior criminal record”, said prosecuting attorney Mark Richardson.

Since the death of her husband, Andre, Marcy Hudson said she’s been doing her best to raise her six kids, with the help of her family.

“I try to do something that makes it easy for them to adjust to what’s going on and it’s very hard for them to understand because they are still so little and they don’t understand how people can be so mean,” she said.

Calvin Hutson in 2012 robbed Andre Hudson at gunpoint, then shot and killed him. In the courtroom Wednesday, Hutson said he was unhappy with how the case turned out, his lawyer, and that he also fired the fatal shot in self defense.

“The state is glad in this case and I’m always glad in cases of this nature that juries get it right and say you can not be an armed robber and pull a gun on someone and threaten their life and then go to court and claim successfully that somehow you were involved in self defense” said Richardson.

Regardless of Hutson’s claims, Hudson said the sentencing was a step forward in the recovery process.

“I feel like life was good enough, it’s going to give him enough time to think about his past and what he’s done to people and maybe he’ll have a wake up call, I doubt it but maybe”, said Hudson.

Calvin Hutson said he plans on appealing the court’s decision and Marcy Hudson said she plans on attending all future hearings.
