    The family of Jason Tournear walked away from the Adams County Courthouse Wednesday wishing for more. They had just watched a jury hand David Masterson, the man who police said beat Tournear to death on Dec. 13 with a 29-inch lead pipe, a quick conviction of aggravated first-degree murder. It took a jury less than two hours to convict Masterson, who faces natural life in prison when he is sentenced June 12 by Judge William Mays. Life in prison, Tournear's family said, isn't enough.
