Michigan CPA Sentenced for Killing Boss

Andy Brown CPAAndy Brown, a 37-year CPA from Portage, Mich., has been sentenced to 37 ½ to 75 years in prison for the murder of his boss. Brown was convicted of second-degree murder for the shooting death of 70-year-old David Locey. Part of the sentence handed down last week was two years for the commission of a felony with a firearm.

Brown lost his CPA license due to an embezzlement conviction in 2005, it was David Locey who took Brown under his wing and helped him regain his license and brought him into Locey's CPA firm in 2009. Brown then shot and killed Locey with three shots to the head from a .38 caliber handgun in his office in Sturgis, Mich. on Oct. 2, 1013. A sole practitioner, Locey had operated his firm for 38 years.

Testimony showed that Locey was contacted by Brown's clients about missing money with one of them owing the Internal Revenue Service $238,000 that they though Brown had been paying. The shooting came soon after a meeting between Locey and clients who had paid Brown, but then received invoices from the firm. Brown was originally charged with first-degree murder, but the jury went for the lesser charge.
