LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Terry McCollum, 34, was sentenced to more than a decade in prison after pleading guilty to possession of methamphetamine and battery.

Prosecutors said McCollum was sentenced to 16 years behind bars and two years supervised probation.

As News 18 reported last June, Lafayette police were called to a home on Meadow Drive for a reported stabbing. The victim identified McCollum as the person who stabbed him.

Police later found meth in the yard of a home on 18th Street. Nearby were several bags including one which was McCollum’s.

He was located two months later, having spent some time in West Virginia. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
