A grandmother who killed a kindergarten teacher will spend the rest of her life in prison.
Elizabeth Wall was issued the sentence Friday afternoon by a judge.
The woman’s attorney said Wall heard voices and has been dealing with mental health issues for decades.
Wall pleaded guilty but mentally ill to the 2016 killing of her estranged daughter-in-law, Jenna Wall.
Wall was caring for her grandkids in June 2016 when she took them to the Powder Springs home where Jenna Wall had been staying with her parents.
In court, it was revealed that Elizabeth Wall took them outside and told the boys to wait in a pick-up truck.
Then they heard the gunshots.
Jenna Wall and her husband, Jerrod Wall, were in the middle of a messy divorce. He wasn’t in court on Friday.
Elizabeth Wall did show some emotion but didn’t address Jenna’s family or her own.
In the courtroom, the judge commended Wall for accepting responsibility and sparing all sides from a long, emotional trial.
