TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A jury in Tulsa County has recommended that a Tulsa man convicted of first-degree murder in the death of his 78-year-old grandmother serve a life prison sentence with the possibility of parole.

The Tulsa World reports (https://bit.ly/11nzOnG ) that Antione Jermaine Jackson was found guilty on Friday of killing Arlevia Jackson in her house on Jan. 29, 2013. District Judge William Musseman scheduled formal sentencing for Dec. 22.

Court documents indicate that Jackson told first responders with the Tulsa Fire Department that “he had smoked water,” slang for PCP, and killed his grandmother. Documents indicate he also told Tulsa police officers at the scene that he had killed her.

The officer who arrested Jackson noted that he was “highly agitated and combative” at the scene.

Jackson remains in the Tulsa Jail.
