Mercer County man, Joshua K. Greaves, was sentenced Monday morning to 20 to 40 years in prison after pleading guilty to the murder of Gregory Bosko.
Both the victim's and the defendant's family spoke at the hearing.
The victim's family called Greaves a monster.
As part of a plea deal, Greaves pleaded guilty May 28 to a reduced charge of murder in the third degree and a felony charge of theft for the homicide of Bosko in Lyndora in March 2017,
Greaves was charged in March 2017 with criminal homicide in the death of Bosko, 55, of Kittanning, during an alleged drug deal in Lyndora.
Prosecutors initially charged Greaves with homicide and other charges after Bosko's body was found wrapped in a green blanket on April 1, 2017, in a wooded area along Redbud Road north of Chicora.
Butler County Coroner William Young III ruled Bosko's death a homicide. He said the cause of death was “sharp trauma of the neck,” and that Bosko's throat had been slit “multiple times.”
