An Atlantic City man is headed back to prison on his second murder charge after having just completed a prison sentence from 1984.
Forty-five year old Steven Pratt is being accused of murdering his mother less than two days after being released from prison.
The Press of Atlantic City reports that Pratt allegedly beat 64-year old Gwendolyn Pratt to death last weekend. An autopsy found that Gwendolyn Pratt died of massive blunt injuries to the head.
Gwendolyn Pratt’s neighbor Ruan Tilghman-Pugh said the family had just thrown Steven Pratt a welcome-home party. According to CBS News, Steven Pratt had been having disagreements with family members over where he would be staying over the weekend.
