Webb sentenced to 50 years for murder

Bass Webb, 32, finally got his sentence to 50 years in prison for the July 31, 2009 brutal murder of his girlfriend Bryia Runiewicz, 31 of Harrison County.

Webb had agreed to plead guilty to a 50-year sentence to avoid a death sentence. However at his sentence hearing on August 15, 2012 his court appointed attorney filed a motion to withdraw his guilty plea. Circuit Judge Jay Delaney set a hearing for September 19. At that hearing Webb's attorney told Judge Delaney that Webb wanted to withdraw his withdrawal of a guilty plea.
