Port Neches man gets 56-year sentence in 2007 murder

Posted:
BEAUMONT -

A Port Neches man has been sentenced to 56 years in prison following his conviction in the 2007 murder of Wayne Beavers, 56, of Port Neches.

The 56-year sentence was handed down to Christopher Robin, 44, late Monday morning.

During testimony in last week's trial, coroner Dr. Tommy Brown testified that Beavers' death was caused by either strangulation, a crushed chest, a fractured skull, or a combination of the three.

Robin claims he came home to find Beavers already dead.

Investigators have described the men's home as "absolutely filthy", and that as many as 10 guests would stay there at once.

The trial was held before Judge Lindsey Scott presiding over the 252nd District Court.
