Disabled woman's killer convicted

September 19, 2007

Cairo-- A 73-year-old man is found guilty of murdering a disabled woman.   A Grady County jury found Martin Wheeler guilty on all counts.  

In January 2006, after worried friends called 911 at a quiet Cairo apartment complex, police found 64-year-old Pearl Johnson murdered in her apartment.

The disabled woman had been stabbed in the heart and neck and strangled. Wheeler was immediately sentenced to life in prison.
