INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A judge has sentenced an Indianapolis man to 30 years in prison for the 2015 slaying of his 78-year-old grandmother.

Television station WRTV reports (https://bit.ly/2pN8xc5 ) Marion County Judge Mark Stoner on Thursday gave 25-year-old Richard Norris the punishment and recommended he undergo a mental health evaluation and treatment in prison.

Norris had agreed to plead guilty to voluntary manslaughter and battery. In exchange, he no longer faced a murder charge.

Indianapolis police say they found Norris with a car belonging to the victim, Lucille Gladney. He was arrested shortly after family members discovered Gladney dead in her bedroom with a rope around her neck in August 2015. Family members told police Norris had mental health issues.
