Waskom Man Sentenced To 99 Years

An East Texas man is sentenced to a lengthy prison term in connection with the beating death of his sister. A Harrison county court jury deliberated only 50 minutes Tuesday before sentencing 60 year old Floyd Carroll Wilson of Waskom, to 99 years in prison. Wilson was found guilty of beating his 58 year old sister, Beverly Ann McCormick, to death with a crow bar at her Waskom home on August 30th of last year.

Investigators say Wilson sat calmly on the front parch of the residence after the incident and waited of police to arrive.
