COBB COUNTY, Ga. — A grandmother who killed a kindergarten teacher will spend the rest of her life in prison. A judge issued the sentence Friday afternoon for Elizabeth Wall.
The woman's attorney said Wall heard voices and has been dealing with mental health issues for decades.
Wall pleaded guilty but mentally ill to the 2016 killing of her estranged daughter-in-law, Jenna Wall.
Elizabeth Wall's lawyer told Channel 2's Chris Jose that his client is remorseful for what happened.
“Certainly she was very remorseful about what happened. She's been very open with me about it,” attorney Jimmy Berry told Jose.
When Wall entered the courtroom on Friday, Jose said she never looked out into the crowd. She didn't say much, either. She only answered the judge's questions.
“Do you know what the doctors diagnosed you with?” the judge asked Wall.
"Yes. Severe chronic depression, PTSD,” Wall answered.
