Parole Hearing

Houston County District Attorney Doug Valeska is trying to block the parole of a Henry County killer. 37-year-old Sondra Denise Grant is in prison for killing her own child.

Grant claimed her 5-month old daughter Kermeesha fell from a bed. Doctors, however, said it was much worse, they compared the baby's injuries to a car crash.

Grant was originally charged with murder, but a jury convicted her of manslaughter instead and was sentenced to 8-years in prison.

Now, the state parole board could set her free later this month.

District Attorney Doug Valeska says he will personally argue against Grant's early release when the parole board considers her case on March 29th.
