A Maysville man was sentenced Tuesday in the death of 23-year-old Leah Dawson.

Reports say Kenneth Wykert was sentenced to 10 years in prison Tuesday on charges of involuntary manslaughter and four years for abandonment of a corpse.

Wykert was convicted on July 16.

Dawson went missing in June 2019.

Her body was discovered nearly three weeks later.

Wykert told the court he does plan to appeal.
