Louisa woman sentenced in murder of boyfriend

LOUISA, VA (WWBT) - Kitty Lynn Gish, 53, of Louisa was sentenced today to the maximum guideline sentence of 6½ years in prison for the murder of Phillip Ray Horn. 

Early in the morning on June 18, 2007, the victim awoke to find Gish (his ex-girlfriend) in his house holding a firearm he reported being stolen two weeks earlier.  When he attempted to call the police on the land line, Gish told him not to worry as she cut the line.  When he attempted to use his cellular telephone, Gish fired the first shot missing the victim. After taking his cellular telephone, she shot him in the chest at close range.

Tom Garrett, Louisa County Commonwealth's Attorney announced the sentencing. Deputy Commonwealth's Attorney, Rusty McGuire, argued for the maximum guideline sentence based on the "cold, calculated, and premeditated crime" and the court agreed sentencing her to 6½ years in prison. 

On speaking of the conviction, Deputy Commonwealth's Attorney, Rusty McGuire said "we are pleased with the outcome today and equally proud of the fine work of the Louisa Sheriff's Office in bringing Ms. Gish to justice."
