LEBANON — A 26-year-old Warren County man was sentenced today to 20 years to life in prison for murdering a friend on Christmas Day 2016, culminating a four-to-five-day methamphetamine binge.
Judge Robert Peeler sentenced Zachary Wilson, 26, on three counts of murder, two counts of felonious assault and single charges of improperly discharging a firearm and tampering with evidence.
Peeler sentenced Wilson after the mother-in-law of the murder victim, Jeremy Foxx, 24, of Carlisle, said he left behind two young children after a troubled life plagued by mental and physical problems.
“Every day they still ask for their daddy,” Anita Lykins said.

Allison Moore, 20, of Franklin Twp., Foxx’s cousin and Wilson’s former girlfriend, was sentenced to 36 months in prison for tampering with evidence in the case.
Wilson, 26, fired at least nine rounds from an AK-47 pistol into Foxx, culminating a five-day methamphetamine binge.
I’m sorry,” Wilson said. It’s a bad situation. I’ve got to live for it for the rest of my life.”
Wilson, a Franklin High graduate living outside Lebanon at the time of the shooting, shot Foxx as they drove with Moore, shattering the back of Foxx’s skull and sending a bullet into one of the homes they were driving by.
The truck crossed through a ditch as Wilson circled back in a futile attempt to find the the pistol before fleeing - first to Caesar Creek Lake Park and then Kentucky.
On Thursday, a victim’s advocate read a statement from a resident of Carlisle into whose home a bullet fired by Wilson went that night.

SAN ANTONIO, Texas — A Bexar County Sheriff's Department deputy was arrested on a felony charge of super aggravated sexual assault Sunday after a 4-year-old girl’s mother was blackmailed to stay silent about the abuse, according to police. The victim’s mother is an undocumented immigrant and was threatened with deportation if she spoke out.
KENS reported that department officials arrested detention Deputy Jose Nunez, 47, after the victim told her mother about the abuse Saturday night in San Antonio, Texas.
Sheriff Javier Salazar said at a news conference Sunday that the mother went to a local fire station and Nunez was arrested.
"The details of the case are quite frankly heartbreaking, disturbing, disgusting and infuriating all at the same time," Salazar said, adding that Nunez had physical contact with the victim and there was "at least some indication of minor injury."
"We have reason to believe that this goes back at least several months, possibly a couple of several years," Salazar said.
Nunez, a 10-year veteran of the department, is on administrative leave pending an investigation.
