Towles sentenced to death in child's slaying

GADSDEN, AL (WAFF) - A Etowah County judge sentenced a man to death by lethal injection in the slaying of a 5-year-old boy.

A jury found Kevin Towles guilty in October on a single capital murder charge in the death of Geonte Glass in December of 2006.

Geonte's body was found in the trunk of a car only a day after Towles and the child's mother, Shalinda Glass, reported him missing. Towles and Shalinda Glass are accused of beating him to death.
