An Escambia County jury deliberated less than 15 minutes this week before finding a Brewton man guilty of murder in the stabbing death of his former girlfriend.
Larry Donnell Donald was found guilty of stabbing his girlfriend 29 times last year.
According to District Attorney Steve Billy, Donald had waived a pre-sentencing investigation and chose to proceed with sentencing.
On Nov. 12, 2004, Donald stabbed to death his 47-year-old girlfriend, Geraldine Dailey Stallworth, during a domestic argument at Cedar Forest Apartments in Alco. Stallworth was found lying in the parking lot by the Brewton Police Department.
Local law enforcement told The Standard last year that Stallworth had exited the apartment building wgeb Donald approached her. A verbal altercation occurred and Donald proceeded to stab Stallworth 29 times before fleeing the scene on foot.
Donald was apprehended by Officer Rodney Brand a short distance from the apartment building, and a search by Sgt. Gene Powell resulted in the discovery of the weapon in a parking lot garbage can.
The jury sentenced Donald to life in prison.
