SALISBURY, Md.– A Delmar man convicted of second-degree murder in connection with a fatal shooting that occurred last year was sentenced to 75 years in prison Thursday, according to the Wicomico County State's Attorney's Office.

Eddie Lee Savage Jr., 30, was sentenced for shooting and killing 48-year-old Kenneth K. Sparks, of Hurlock, in July 2013. Police said it happened at Savage’s home at 29961 Foskey Lane in Delmar, Md.

A Wicomico County Circuit Court jury found Savage guilty of second-degree murder and related charges in February.

Charging documents show Sparks and other family members went to Savage’s home to retrieve children that had in common with Savage. According to court records, Savage came out of the home, got into an argument with Sparks in the driveway, pulled out a handgun and shot Sparks in the face.

Sparks was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury where he was pronounced dead.
