Scott Dunn

Scott A. Dunn, 28, formerly of Slippery Rock, was sentenced Thursday morning to 24 years and 5 months to 52 years in prison for voluntary manslaughter, abuse of a corpse and two counts of arson.

Dunn beat his wife, Brandi, to death in January 2006 and then set her parents’ Grove City home on fire to cover up his crime. The Dunns had been house-sitting.

Under Pennsylvania law, Dunn must serve the minimum sentence but with district attorney and family opposition to parole, he likely will serve the maximum.

Dunn was sentenced by Mercer County Common Pleas Court Judge Thomas R. Dobson.
