An Owensboro man is sentenced for beating an elderly person to death at a nursing home.

Christopher Jackson will spend the next 20 years in prison. Jackson pleaded guilty this past January.

Authorities say he beat, kicked, and stomped 78-year-old Leslie Tyler Mulligan to death at the Rosedale Nursing Home back in December of 2008.
