Man sentenced for yanking tracheal tube

  • Follow Latest News

ATLANTA - A 44-year-old man has been sentenced to life in prison for killing his girlfriend by removing her tracheal tube.

A court convicted Paul Brown for the October 2008 beating and asphyxiation of 47-year-old Carlene Jones.

According to the Fulton County District Attorney's Office, Brown and Jones had apparently been fighting over food stamps and beer money the day before her body was found.

Authorities say Brown hit Jones in the face with a closed fist and then tore her tracheal tube from her neck.

Authorities say following the woman's death, Brown told a friend he pulled the tracheal tube out of Jones' neck during the assault.

Jones had used the tracheal tube to assist with breathing following a 1995 car accident.

Unpublished

The circumstances seems a bit strange... and the "Brown told a friend he pulled..." is again, strange. That so-called "friend" was probably "convinced" to provide that little bit of information, which seems like hearsay, but either way, this is a tragedy.
