Judge won’t cut sentence in 2013 Troy murder

McGail, now 20, was convicted by a Miami County Common Pleas Court jury in August 2014 in the October 2013 death of Nate Wintrow, 20, of Troy in a home invasion.

Two other defendants, including 19-year-old shooter Jason Sowers, pleaded to charges in the case, testified against McGail and are in prison.

Sowers is serving 18 years to life. Brendon Terrel, 21, was sentenced to 14 years. Sowers and McGail went into the house while Terrel did not, according to court testimony.

McGail was sentenced to 24 years to life on charges of murder, aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary and a firearms specification.

His case was back in court Friday at the order of the 2nd District Court of Appeals, which ruled in December he should be resentenced by Judge Christopher Gee because two of the charges — murder and aggravated robbery — stemmed from the same act.
