WARNER ROBINS, Ga. (AP) — A 33-year-old Georgia man has been sentenced to life in prison after being convicted of murdering his grandmother.
A jury last week convicted Jared Randall Carter after prosecutors presented evidence that he struck 81-year-old Valeria Jean Mann of Warner Robins with a ceramic Crock-pot dish and stabbed her with a kitchen knife in 2018.
Carter could be eligible for parole after 30 years.
He was also sentenced to five years for possessing a knife during a crime.
Witnesses testified that Carter and Mann had a contentious relationship after Carter came south from his hometown of New York to live with Mann.
