TIPPECANOE CO., Ind. (WLFI) – A six year sentence is ordered for a man who punched another in the face which caused serious injury.

Kevin Trueblood II, 23, pleaded guilty to one count of battery causing serious bodily injury.

Prosecutors said Trueblood, who was homeless at the time, stayed the night at a Lafayette home in August of last year. They said when one of the people living there asked him to leave the next morning, Trueblood got angry, threw a punch and caused jaw fractures that required surgery.

Trueblood was sentenced to six years in the Department of Corrections and possibly, if approved, one year in Tippecanoe County Community Corrections. He was also ordered to pay close to $2,000 in restitution for medical expenses. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
