Grandfather to Spend Life in Prison for Murder of Wife, Granddaughter


by WCCB Charlotte

ROCK HILL, SC -- A Rock Hill man accused of killing his bedridden wife and his nine-year-old granddaughter will spend the rest of his life in prison.

Sixty-eight-year-old Ronald Gregory was found guilty of two counts of murder.  Investigators say he shot and killed Barbara and Mia Rodgers because of a custody dispute with Mia's other grandparents.

The shooting happened back in March at the family's home on Idlewild Drive.  Gregory sat emotionless in court Monday as the sentencing was read.  Doctors say Gregory is mentally ill, and will receive treatment while in prison.
