Let’s just start by saying there clearly was a lot more going on here than just being a little too warm or chilly. But the headline is that 53-year-old Candy Ann Moss was recently sentenced to 15 years in prison for shooting her live-in boyfriend during an argument over the thermostat setting.
Kentucky’s Bowling Green Daily News reports the sentence came after Moss pleaded guilty to numerous charges, including first-degree assault for shooting 64-year-old Steve A. Flynn on November 28, 2018.
Moss reportedly told Kentucky State Police investigators at the time that she “went crazy” when she shot Flynn after an “ongoing” argument over her adjusting the thermostat temperature setting.
Flynn was shot twice with a .38 caliber handgun, sustaining wounds to the left side of his neck, as well as his lower left chest area and left hand. Police found the handgun at the scene.
Moss, who told police Flynn was controlling and verbally abusive, also was charged with forging checks written on Flynn’s account for two days prior to the shooting, and using his credit card the day after.
