Two Savannah men are facing life behind bars for killing an elderly woman last January. Yesterday, a grand jury indicted 22-year-old Jermaine Wright and 22-year-old Akheem Hunter for murder and armed robbery. Police arrested the two in September.

Officers say the two men knocked 79-year-old Sarah Price to the ground as they tried to steal her purse in the Piggly Wiggly parking lot in Sandfly. Price died a few days later at the hospital from head injuries.

If convicted, both men could spend the rest of their lives in prison.
