KILLEEN, TX — A Killeen man was sentenced to life in prison Tuesday, after he pleaded guilty last week to murder and aggravated robbery.
Carl Anthony Talton Jr. was arrested in 2012 for the death of Shenetria Norwood. Norwood's body was found on Quarry Road, near Nolanville in September 2012. Her family reported her missing the month before. Investigation revealed Norwood was shot to death.
Talton's plea deal allowed him to avoid being charged with capital murder and facing the death penalty. He will be eligible for parole in 2042.
