Emotional testimony from the victim's parents precedes the sentencing of a man and a woman for the murder of a Bowling Green man.
Tonya Ray and Christopher Hackworth were each sentenced to life in prison in Warren Circuit Court on Sept. 13.
In August, they both pleaded guilty to beating Lee Ford Johnson to death with a baseball bat in his apartment July 16 of last year.
Before the pair was sentenced, Johnson's parents spoke to them in court.
"Striking him once outside with a baseball bat. Then dragging him inside and striking him several more times--then robbing him of $19," Johnson's father, Donald Johnson said.
"If you can only imagine seeing your child in a coffin, and being totally unrecognizable. The only thing I recognized were his hands, and they were bruised," Johnson's mother, Marsha Johnson said.
Hackworth and Ray will be eligible for parole in 19 years.
We'll hear what they had to say to Johnson's family on WBKO at 10..
