Good Samaritan Killer Sentenced

A man who had been out of prison just eight days before killing a Good Samaritan who tried to stop a purse-snatching will go back behind bars.
Twenty-seven-year-old Brad Joseph Jones of Gardner was sentenced yesterday to life plus 14 years for murder, robbery, theft and
fleeing from police. He'll have to serve 30 years before seeking parole.
Jones was convicted in last June's death of 29-year-old Jonathan
U in a Johnson County parking lot.
U heard a woman scream that her purse had been stolen and tried to grab it from inside Jones's car. Jones sped off and crashed, crushing U between the car door and building.
Judge John Anderson the Third said he imposed the maximum sentence because Jones had been given several chances to kick his drug habit, and had failed.
