Boy Sorry He Stabbed Disabled Vet

A judge sentenced a 20-year-old transient to 20 years in prison Thursday for fatally stabbing a disabled Joint Base Lewis-McChord soldier 14 times in the back, neck and head during a drug-fueled attack in March. The soldier, Nathaniel Ollis, 29, was killed in his apartment in the 500 block of Lilly Road just 21/2 years after he suffered permanent injuries when an improvised explosive device detonated while he was serving with the 5th Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division in Afghanistan. Thurston County Superior Court Judge Carol Murphy handed down Dwight Bradsbery’s sentence after hearing a prepared speech by the dead soldier’s older sister, who flew in from Seabrook, N.H. Lisa Ollis-Ruszczyk spoke of how she believes Bradsbery deserves more than a 20-year sentence for killing her brother. Prior to Thursday’s hearing, Bradsbery had pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, residential burglary, theft of a motor vehicle and attempting to elude police. Read more here:
