Grandfather killer gets life
BATON ROUGE- Dustin Musso has been convicted of first degree murder in the death of his grandfather in 2009.
Musso will spend the rest of his life in prison and does not qualify for probation or parole.
Jurors deliberated for a short time Friday before announcing their verdict.
Musso confessed to killing his grandfather and then torching the man's house. But, defense attorneys argued that because Musso's grandfather molested and abused him, he should face a lesser charge of manslaughter.
