The man behind bars for the murder of Megan Maxwell will now serve a concurrent federal sentence for sex offender registration crime.  A federal judge also sentenced him to serve lifetime supervised release by the federal court system.

In January, Jeffery Lee Stock, 44, of Newport  took a "best interest" plea deal for the murder of 19 year-old Megan Maxwell in 2009.

He was sentenced to 18 years for the second degree murder charge, but received nearly four years off for time served.  

Wednesday, Stock was sentenced to serve 46 months in federal prison for traveling out of state and failure to register as a convicted sex offender.

Stock will spend a little more than 14 years behind bars.

After his release, Stock will have to serve a lifetime of federal supervised release.  This reverses the Cocke Co. judgement in which Stock was to face no time of supervised release.

Stock did not admit guilt in Megan's murder.
