LA CROSSE COUNTY, Wis. (WEAU) -

UPDATE: WEAU reached out to Anthony’s father, Gus Fimple, who spoke on behalf of the family about the sentencing saying, “We are disappointed that the convict will have an opportunity for parole, but understand and accept Judge Levine’s sentence. The important thing now is to focus on healing as a family and doing good work in Anthony’s name.”

A Minnesota man was sentenced in a homicide case in La Crosse County Court Friday.

Timothy Young, 32, of Spring Grove, Minn, was sentenced to life in prison with eligibility for extended supervision at 35 years. He had been charged with first degree intentional homicide.

In March, Young pled guilty to the shooting death of Anthony Fimple,19, at the Twisted Moose Bar in La Crosse. Fimple was working as a bouncer at the bar and denied Young entry. Young left the bar, came back with a gun and shot Fimple in the head, according to police and witness statements.

Fimple was taken to a hospital where he later died.

The La Crosse County criminal complaint noted that when the incident occurred, it had not been the first time the Twisted Moose Bar had issues with Young.

The prosecution asked for 40 years in prison with the possibility of parole, while the defense asked for 25 years in prison.

Young’s attorney announced in January that a plea agreement had been reached in the case.
