SHEPHERDSVILLE - Two individuals involved with the events following the shooting death of Timothy Nevitt in January 2007 now know their fate.

Paul Cipparone and Kimberly Ann Moore were in Bullitt Circuit Court over the past week.

Cipparone, 48, of Bardstown, was sentenced to four years in prison and Moore entered a plea where she would serve the next five years on probation.

Both were charged with complicity to tampering with physical evidence.

Keith Moore was recently found guilty of Nevitt’s murder and will serve a life sentence. Under the parole laws, he would have no chance of asking for release from prison until he has served at least 20 years.

On Jan. 16, 2007, Moore and Nevitt had an argument. The two had been friends for years. The jury declined to believe Moore’s story that he was acting in self-defense when he shot Nevitt.

During the trial, it was discovered that Cipparone was called by Moore to help him dispose of the body in a field off Sarver Lane.

Defense attorney Paula Pace asked Circuit Judge Rodney Burress to place her client on probation. She said he has health issues and was not getting the proper medical care.

Prosecutor Mike Ferguson said Cipparone was involved in the dumping of Nevitt’s body and he opposed any probation.

Burress sentenced Cipparone to four years in prison.

Kimberly Ann Moore, 44, of Shepherdsville, entered a guilty plea.

The plea agreement was to have the five-year sentence probated for five years.

She told Burress that she went to her brother’s trailer and helped to clean up the blood.

Final sentencing in that case has been set for Jan. 13 at 8:30 a.m.
