Attorney General Koster announces sentencing in Knox County murder case

Jefferson City, Mo. – Attorney General Chris Koster said today Linn County Circuit Judge Gary Ravens has sentenced Shane Colby Roberts, 32, to 25 years in state prison after he pled guilty to 2nd degree murder in the 2006 killing of a Knox County man. The case was heard in Linn County on a change of venue.

Koster said Roberts and his sister, Angela Knowles, attempted to rob the Knox County home of Larry Callahan, 57, in October 2006. Roberts and his sister shot Callahan twice in the chest with a shotgun. Knowles was sentenced to a 25-year prison term in March.

Koster said his office assisted the Knox County Prosecuting Attorney’s office in the prosecution of the case.
