JACKSONVILLE, AR — A man accused of killing a Jacksonville firefighter can expect to spend the next three decades behind bars. The State Court of Appeals upheld Bryce Allen’s conviction.

Emergency responders were working an accident back in 2012, when Allen struck and killed Captain Donald Jones. He also injured another firefighter and police officer.

A judge “originally” sentenced Allen to 70 years in prison.

Family members — of one of the victims — say he’ll be eligible for parole in about 30 years and they plan to be there to encourage parole board members to keep him institutionalized for the full 70 year sentence.
