Gundrum

Norman Gundrum Jr. enters the Northumberland County Courthouse Thursday ahead of his resentencing. Gundrum received time served and is eligible for parole.

SUNBURY — Norman Gundrum Jr., 42, who was convicted and sentenced in 1995 for a murder he was convicted of while 16 years old, was resentenced Thursday in Northumberland County Court to time served.

He is immediately eligible for parole.

The murder of Bobby Coup was committed in Milton in 1993. Gundrum has been jailed since after being sentenced to life without parole.

The Supreme Court ruled in 2016, via the Post-Conviction Relief Act, that inmates who committed murder as teenagers can seek parole or a new sentence.
