A Louisville man was sentenced to life for killing his stepson.

Josh Gouker admitted to beating 14-year-old Trey Zwicker to death with a pipe in May 2011.

Gouker’s son, Josh Young, now 17, is charged with complicity in the crime, although Gouker has said he acted alone.

Zwicker’s body was found in a ditch near Liberty High School, not far from his home.

Young’s trial began last Monday. Gouker originally claimed Young struck Zwicker with a baseball bat. His story has changed several times since then.
