OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) — A Winnebago County judge has given an Oshkosh man convicted of killing his girlfriend a chance at parole.
Samson Gomoll was sentenced to life in prison Friday with the possibility of parole in 32 years. Judge Scott Woldt had the option of denying possible parole for Gomoll, who was convicted of first-degree intentional homicide.
A jury earlier found Gomoll guilty of fatally shooting of 42-year-old Stacey Strange at the couple’s apartment last September.
Prosecutors had argued the shooting was a “cold-blooded murder.” The defense said it was self-defense because Gomoll was afraid Strange was going to kill him.
