CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A former lawn care worker has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for killing a 90-year-old Charleston man with a hammer.

The Charleston Gazette (https://bit.ly/1uCpcO9 ) reports a Kanawha County circuit judge sentenced 40-year-old Anthony David Caldwell on Wednesday.

Caldwell pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in July.

Prosecutors say the Charleston resident hit George Molle Jr. with a hammer and took money from the victim’s house. Police found Molle’s body inside the house on Jan. 3.

Police say Caldwell had worked for a lawn-care business used by Molle.
