Pasco man gets life in prison for terrorizing ex-wife

NEW PORT RICHEY — Roy "Dave" Kinard, a man convicted last month of terrorizing his ex-wife at gunpoint during a seven-hour siege, was sentenced Wednesday to spend the rest of his life in prison.

Kinard, 46, had controlled and abused his wife for years, even after their divorce. On May 2, 2009, he forced his way into her home, pistol-whipped her, held a knife on her and threatened another woman and toddler in the Port Richey home.

He was convicted of armed burglary, kidnapping, aggravated assault and aggravated battery with a firearm. Because those felonies were committed within three years after Kinard left prison on other charges, he received a mandatory life sentence as a prison releasee reoffender.
