The stepson of slain Ridgeway High School assistant basketball coach Jimmy McClain has been sentenced to 22 years in prison for McClain's murder.

Dwayne Moore, 21, the son of McClain’s estranged wife, reportedly shot his 49-year-old stepfather multiple times with a .40 caliber pistol. On February 22nd, 2013, McClain’s body was discovered by Shelby County Sheriff’s deputies in his home at 7667 Cordova Club.

Moore was convicted in June of murdering McClain. This week, he was sentenced to 22 years in prison without parole for the murder, according to the Shelby County District Attorney General's office.

Prior to being discovered by law enforcement, McClain had been reportedly missing for two days. Aside from being a coach, he was a pastor and former University of Central Arkansas basketball star.
