September 18--  A Soperton teenager will be spending the rest of his life in a Georgia prison.

According to Treutlen County Clerk of Court Connie Sumner, 18-year-old Corlandis Burgess was sentenced to life without parole Wednesday morning by Judge Donnie Gillis at the Treutlen County courthouse in Soperton.

Burgess had been found guilty of the killing nearly three years ago of 88-year-old Alice Eleanor Williams at her home near Soperton.  Burgess and 18-year-old Jordan Nobles broke into the woman's home where they beat and stabbed her to death.

Nobles had earlier entered a guilty plea and also got life without parole.
