The final three defendants in the murder of Meriwether grandmother were sentenced Tuesday and Wednesday, officials said.

Angel Latrice Harmon, Justin Peirce Grady and Cortavious Deshun Heard all pled guilty in the 2016 murder case of Dorothy “Dot” Dow.

Prosecutors said Harmon was sentenced Tuesday. Harmon was sentenced with first-degree burglary, felony murder, aggravated assault, and home invasion. Harmon received a life sentence for felony murder.

Officials said Grady was sentenced Wednesday with Malice murder, armed robbery, and home invasion. Harmon received a life concurrent sentence.

Prosecutors said Heard was sentenced Wednesday with malice murder, armed robbery, home invasion, and aggravated battery. Heard was sentenced to life without parole.

Mina Ellery previously pled guilty and has already been transferred to serve her sentence, officials said.

"I am pleased with the outcome of the sentences related to these case investigations and that the victim's family was satisfied in justice being served. Although these sentences will never replace their loved one, Mrs. "Dot" Dow, that was lost in this senseless horrific crime." Sheriff Chuck Smith said.

Officials said Harmon, Grady, and Heard are awaiting transfer to the Georgia Department of Corrections to begin serving their sentences.
