Clayton Eli Watts has plead guilty to the 2013 murder of his grandmother, getting a 30-year sentence in a plea deal.
Watts was in court Wednesday afternoon. He looked considerably different than he did at the time of Jimmie Paul's murder in 2013. Bigger and with a beard and mustache, he spoke in a quiet voice as he was questioned by Judge Benjamin Culbertson and Sixth Circuit Assistant Solicitor Julie Hall. His hands and legs were shackled, even as he signed some documents and placed his hand on The Bible.
