CHICAGO — A Chicago teenager will spend 23-years in prison for murdering his grandmother, a Chicago police officer.

In 2011, Hester Scott caught her grandson Keshawn Perkins skipping school and sleeping in front of the TV at home.

Prosecutors said Perkins flew into a rage when he got caught, and beat, stabbed and slashed Scott to death.

Perkins later admitted to the crime, and led police to his grandmother’s body.

      Of course he deserved more time. His grandmother was only trying to help him but she should have left him ALONE. To bad if he did not have any where to go. I heard she was trying to give him back to the state. I do not believe in grandparents taking in wayward children. If their parents cannot do anything with them, what makes you think YOU can and you are much older?
