BAINBRIDGE, Ga. (WCTV) -- A man has been sentenced to life in prison for fatally shooting a coworker in 2016.

Police say, on April 29, Quentieria Knight was found shot to death in her car on Zorn Road.

Investigators with the Decatur County Sheriff’s Office and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation determined Knight and Demarquis Glenn left work at Elberta Crate together around 11:30 p.m. the previous night.

Surveillance video showed Knight and Glenn drive to Zorn Road and then stop. Glenn was seen minutes later entering a nearby store.

According to arrest documents, detectives found the weapon used in the shooting in Glenn's home. Police say the gun was also linked to the murder of Marcus Bell.

Glenn was indicted and tried for malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

After a three day trial, a jury convicted Glenn on all counts, and he was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole.

Joe Mulholland, District Attorney for the South Georgia Circuit, said "I have rarely seen such a heartless, unforgiving defendant. Demarquis Glenn is going to spend the rest of his natural life behind bars where he belongs. I hope other criminals see this and realize that we will keep our community safe, and send violent criminals to prison for as long as the law allows."
