— GREENSBURG — Waldo Jones was sentenced to 60 years in prison Wednesday for his role in the 2011 murder of a Greensburg boy.

Jones, 31, received the maximum sentence allowable under the guilty plea agreement he entered in October. He plans to appeal the decision.

Decatur County Superior Court Judge Matthew Bailey handed down the sentence in front of a packed courtroom that included several law enforcement officials as well as friends of the family and the victim, 12-year-old Devin Lee Parsons.

Jones and the boy’s mother, Tasha Marie Parsons, both received 60-year prison terms for their roles in the June 2011 beating death of Devin Parsons.
