Panama City, FL –

OKALOOSA COUNTY, Florida (WKRG) – An Okaloosa man was sentenced to 40 years in prison for killing his ex-girlfriend’s grandmother in 2018.

Jeremiah Murphy, who was 17 at the time, killed a 69-year-old Crestview woman. According to prosecutors, the victim was the grandmother of Murphy’s ex-girlfriend. The victim did not approve of her granddaughter dating Murphy and between May 26 and 28, Murphy allegedly shot and killed the woman in her home, according to the state’s attorney’s office.

Officials said casings found at the scene matched a .380 pistol that belonged to Murphy’s parents. Police say Murphy told them he and another person were planning to break into the house and after the shooting Murphy stole his vehicle and left the scene.

Due to Murphy’s age at the time, he was eligible for a review of his sentence after 25 years.
