BAY ST. LOUIS — A Hancock County jury has convicted a man of murder in the 2012 death of a Bay St. Louis businessman.
The jury returned a unanimous verdict Tuesday after deliberating for about two hours.
The Sun Herald reports Circuit Judge Lisa Dodson sentenced Glen Davis, a habitual offender, to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Assistant District Attorney Chris Daniel said Davis had five prior felony convictions.
Police discovered 83-year-old Maurice Colly dead in the trunk of his car parked in his garage on March 8, 2012.
An autopsy revealed the cause of death to be multiple blunt force trauma injuries and asphyxiation.
