A man was sentenced to life in prison plus 15 years for the murder of his girlfriend's son, Fulton County District Attorney, Paul Howard, Jr., announced on Wednesday.
On February 13, Calvin Sneed, 52, drove to the 3600 block of Croft Place to pick up Antoinette Williams, a woman he was in a long-term extramarital relationship with, according to
The couple went to buy alcohol, then drove to a local park to drink. They returned to the residence on Croft Place where they sat in the front yard and continued to drink.
Shortly after 10 p.m., Gregory Jones, Williams' son, returned home with a friend he picked up from a local McDonald's.
He saw his mother and Sneed drinking in the front yard which sparked an argument between Jones and his mother regarding her relationship with Sneed.
D.A. Howard said Sneed intervened and told Jones the argument was between him and his mother and that Jones should stay out of their argument. Jones made it clear that Sneed was not welcomed at their home. Sneed took offense to Jones' words and pulled out his .32 revolver and shot him in the chest, piercing his heart. After Jones fell to the ground, Sneed stood over him and shot him at least two more times. He left the scene with the gun.
Jones died at a local hospital. He was a father of five children between the ages of three and 11. Sneed was arrested by College Park Police on February 20 after a friend reported him to police.
