Death Sentence for Towels
Death by lethal injection. That's the sentence a judge gave an Etowah County man convicted of killing his girlfriend's son in 2006. In December, a jury convicted Kevin Towles in the death of 5-year-old Geontae Glass. Prosecutors say Towles beat the child to death and then staged a kidnapping with the boy's mother to try and cover it up. A state court overturned Towles' first conviction in the case and sent it back for a retrial last year.
