ROANOKE, Va. – A Roanoke man admitted to killing his grandmother in 2018.
In court Friday morning, Dontae Brown pleaded guilty to murdering 64-year-old Charlotte Brewster in September of last year.
Authorities say Brewster had taken out a protective order against her grandson, but he was with her when police found her badly beaten in her home. She was taken to the hospital where she later died.
Under a plea deal, a judge gave Brown a life sentence, which will be suspended after he serves 25 years.
