Parolee convicted of killing 84 year old woman near Pontiac, MI


From CBS Detroit…

A Novi man who was convicted of murdering his 84-year-old neighbor while he was out on parole for another killing will spend the rest of his life behind bars.

An Oakland County jury deliberated for a little more than an hour in September before returning its verdict against 47-year-old Peter Gerard Jones.

The Detroit Free Press reports he was sentenced Tuesday to life in prison without the chance for parole — the mandatory term for first-degree murder.

Bernice Schaufele’s body was found Jan. 13 in her home in the 20900 block of West Glen Haven Circle at the Country Place condo complex, located near 8 Mile and Meadowbrook roads, about 20 miles northwest of Detroit.
