A 47-year-old New Jersey man was arrested on a charge of manslaughter for killing his mother just two days after being released from prison for killing his neighbor.
Steven Pratt of Atlantic City got into an argument with his mother, 64-year-old Gwendolyn Pratt, who was hosting a “welcome home” party for her son two days after completing a 30 year sentence for killing his neighbor Michael Anderson.
The argument, which took place after the party, led to her death. Officers found her body the following day.
He was still at the scene and was arrested.
In court, he told the judge that he failed and didnâ€™t want a trial.
He pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to serve 25 years in prison.
