LAFAYETTE, Ga. (AP) - A man accused of beating his grandmother to death with a metal pipe pleaded guilty in Walker County Superior Court.

The Chattanooga Times Free-Press (https://bit.ly/1F3gjBI ) reports 32-year-old Joshua Michael Fowler will be sentenced to life with the possibility of parole. Fowler was charged after the March 2014 death of 75-year-old Joyce Ann Fowler.

A district attorney says Joshua Fowler got into an argument with his grandmother. Fowler told investigators he had taken cocaine and methamphetamines, lost his temper, then grabbed a pipe and beat his grandmother in the back of the head.

Fowler would be eligible for parole at the earliest in 2045. The Georgia Parole Board does not consider letting someone with a life sentence out of prison until he or she has served 30 years.
