Road rage shooter sentenced to 25-50 years behind bars

UPDATE: Martin Zale has been sentenced to 25-50 years behind bars for shooting Derek Flemming in a road rage incident last fall.

HOWELL, MI (WLNS) – The man found guilty of second degree murder in a road rage shooting will learn his fate in just a couple hours.

Last month a jury convicted 70-year old Martin Zale.
