Man gets life for beating death

CHICAGO (AP) – A man has been sentenced to life in prison for the brutal beating death of his elderly aunt.

The Cook County State’s Attorney’s office says 56-year-old David Brown of Maywood was sentenced late Wednesday.

Authorities say Brown assaulted Franklin, beating her in the head with a ceramic coffee mug. They say Brown then robbed her of jewelry and her car. He was later arrested when he crashed the car into a tree.

Franklin died of cranial cerebral injuries several weeks after the attack.
