Guilty Verdict in Fatal Purse Snatching

A jury found Akeem Hunter guilty of felony murder and robbery. The judge sentenced him to life in prison.

In January, 2003, Hunter and another man drove by 79-year-old Sarah Price, grabbed her purse and knocked her down. Price died a few days later from head injuries.

Prosecutors have not yet set a trial date for Jermaine Wright, the other man in the car.
