Dumas, TX - A Dumas man is sentenced to life in prison, in a case where the victim's throat was cut, and his body left in his own car.

Donald Lee Jameson was convicted by a Moore County jury of killing 57-year-old Ronald Whitfield in August of 2009.

Investigators say the murder happened when Whitfield was giving Jameson a ride home from a Dumas bar, when Jameson could not find his car in the parking lot.

The same jury which found him guilty handed down the sentence.
