Two Accomplices in Henderson County Baseball Coach Murder Sentenced
Two men pled guilty for their roles in the 2009 shooting death of Henderson County baseball coach Oscar “Poochie” Corn.
Terry Lee Landrum and Mykel Waters, both 20, pled guilty to first and second-degree burglary and robbery with a deadly weapon. They will serve 13-and-a-half to 18 years in prison each.
According to theHendersonville Times-News, Landrum and Waters were juveniles at the time of the killing, and testified last month against Steven Ramirez, 37, who was found guilty of first-degree murder. Ramirez was sentenced to life in prison.
The newspaper reports that Corn’s wife, Joyce, testified in the Ramirez trial that three assailants entered the home she shared with Poochie Corn, who was killed by a gunshot to the head. She said Ramirez was the man who pointed a pistol at her. Landrum and Waters testified that Ramirez was the only one with a gun that day, and that they both left the hallway after Corn was struck on the head and before the shot.
