Milford Barnett was released from jail the same day a jury found him guilty of voluntary manslaughter in the death of his mother Pearl Barnett. That doesn’t seem right to family members of the victim.
“I don’t think it was justice for her,” daughter Vickie Nevels said.
According to court records, Milford admitted to striking his mother in the head with a pipe. The victim’s niece also expressed disappointment about his newfound freedom.
“It doesn’t quite seem fair to me,” Judy Baker said.
