It was deja vu for a man convicted last year of killing an elderly Lima woman during a burglary of her home.
Demond Jones was sentenced in September of last year to life without parole for the beating and shooting death of Marjorie Williams at her south side house.
He was originally convicted and sentenced on charges including aggravated murder, aggravated robbery, and weapons under disability.
Because of a Supreme Court ruling affecting some felony cases, Jones had to be re-sentenced after the charges were merged and one was specified to determine the length of the sentence.
As a formality, a conviction was again entered on the aggravated murder charge.
Allen County Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey Reed then re-sentenced Jones to life behind bars without chance for parole.
