A Bibb County superior court judge sentenced Kevon Watkins to life in a bench trial on Friday.
The teen who was 16 years old choked his sister to death in a fight over a Wi-Fi password has been sentenced to life in prison.
A dispute ensued, and the teen’s sister, Alexus Breanna Watkins, 20, came to her mother’s aid after fearing her brother would become physical with their mother, according to the District Attorney.
The siblings began to fight, and their mother called for help when she couldn’t separate them, testimony said.
Kevon Watkins held his sister in a chokehold for about 15 minutes. When he finally released his sister upon a deputy’s commands, she fell to the floor. She was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
Watkins waived his right to a jury trial and chose to have a Bibb County judge hear testimony and review evidence in the case. He was found guilty of felony murder.
