WELCH, W.Va. — A Kentucky man who admitted to charges connected to the torture and killing of his daughter’s boyfriend in McDowell County will spend life in a West Virginia prison for his crimes.
Larry Paul McClure Sr., 55, of Pendleton, Ky. received the life term this week in McDowell County Circuit Court. He pleaded guilty to first degree murder for the February 2019 death of John Thomas McGuire, 38, of Minnesota.
McClure’s daughter, Amanda Michelle Naylor McClure, 31, of Chisago City, Minnesota pleaded guilty to second-degree murder back in July in the incident. McGuire’s body was found last September in a shallow grave near a home where they had been staying in McDowell County.
