A teenager could face 20 years in prison if convicted of beating and robbing a 94 year old Marietta man.  The Marietta Daily Journal reports 15 year old James Glover will be tried as an adult. An 11-year old boy has already admitted his role in the crime, and testified against Glover at a hearing on Monday before Judge Juanita Stedman.  The 11-year old was sentenced to two year of state supervision, but according to the newspaper, he’s been released from detention.

Prosecutors say the boys tricked 94-year old Paul Smallwood into letting them inside his home, then knocked him down and hit him on the head with a rock.
