CLARKSBURG, W.Va. – A man who refused to allow his daughter to visit her grandparents was sentenced Friday to two months in jail.
Nathan Mitchell’s estranged wife, Shannon Stafford, 29, was murdered by Mitchell’s father Larry Mitchell in the parking lot of the Morgantown Wal-Mart two years ago. Nathan Mitchell violated a court order when he refused to allow his daughter to visit Stafford’s parents in 2013.
Mitchell pleaded guilty in March to concealment of a child.
Harrison County Judge Thomas Bedell also placed Mitchell on five years probation Friday along with the 60-day jail sentence. Mitchell’s father pleaded guilty to murder in Dec. 2012.
