A judge sentenced a man who killed his own father and then burned the body in the backyard to 40 years in prison Wednesday.
Troy Fisher killed his father, Edward Fisher, back in 2011 and was found guilty of two charges of murder.
Detectives say the Brush Prairie man admitted to killing his dad after they got into a struggle with a handgun.
He said it went off and shot Edward Fisher in the head.
Court documents show that Troy Fisher shot his father again in the back and then threw his body on a burn pile outside.
Family members came to the sentencing Wednesday.
Edward Fisher's daughter, Trudy Allen, was just one family member who gave an emotional testimony.
She talked about what a loving man her father was.
She said, "To never hear his voice again, to never hear his laugh or the funny way he sneezed, that always made me laugh. The silly jokes or the one lines he would say or the stories he would tell. All of these things will be missed more than words can ever be expressed."
She later went on to say, "I will never get the chance to say thank you for everything he did and said to me. I never got the chance to say goodbye. I didn't get the chance one last time to tell him how much I love him. Those thoughts have kept me up at night. And I know, I will never forgive Troy for what he took from me, from my kids and from this world."
During Allen's emotional testimony, sounds of crying could be heard in the courtroom. At one point, the judge stopped her to address the room and asked if they needed to take a break. No one spoke up, so the judge let Allen continue.
