December 28-- A Soperton man will spend the rest of his life in jail for the July 2011 murder of Marquis Wadley of Soperton.
Sylvester Davis Jr. was sentenced to life without parole by Superior Court Judge Donnie Gillis for what the judge called, "a senseless act."
Davis was convicted of shooting Wadley in the head and transporting the body to Vidalia where it was found the morning after the killing.
His half-brother, Jonathon Wright, was an accomplice and turned state's evidence in the case. Treutlen Sheriff Tommy Corbin says he hopes Wright's case will adjudicated in a hearing set for January 10.
