Clinch shot and killed his brother-in-law, Jeremy Bohannon, on Sept. 2, 2007, in a McDonald's parking lot in Columbia. Clinch said he shot Bohannon after the brother-in-law threatened Amanda Clinch ó Jeremy Bohannon's wife and Clinch's sister ó and the couple's three children.

Boone County Circuit Court Judge Gary Oxenhandler sentenced Clinch to life in prison without the possibility of parole, a mandatory sentence for first-degree murder.
