Grandson gets 17 years in beating death of 90-year-old woman

COLUMBUS, Ohio – A central Ohio man who pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the death of his 90-year-old grandmother has been sentenced to 17 years in prison.

John Spindler of Columbus was sentenced Thursday.

The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1hP5E2b) reports the 41-year-old Spindler apologized for attacking his mother and hurting his grandmother when she tried to intervene in the dispute. He says he would take back his actions if he could.

Investigators said Spindler beat his 60-year-old mother and threw his grandmother to the floor during a June altercation at the family’s home. The older woman died days later.

Spindler pleaded guilty last month to charges of involuntary manslaughter and felonious assault.

The newspaper said he’ll be eligible for release after he serves half of his sentence.
