Fort Wayne, IN (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - The Indiana Court of Appeals has ruled a Fort Wayne man's 103-year sentence will stand.

According to published reports, Ronnie Jones claimed the Dekalb County judge overlooked his diagnosis of multiple sclerosis and lack of criminal background during sentencing.

But the appeals court ruled the sentence was justified because of the severity of the case.

New Year’s day of 2010, Jones killed his girlfriend at her job, and then shot at his ex-wife's house in Waterloo before plowing his truck into it.
