Former Rock Hill caregiver gets life without parole in death of 82-year-old
Braquette Walton, a former caregiver at a Rock Hill assisted living home, will spend the rest of her life in prison without a chance for parole after a jury found her guilty in the smothering death of 82-year-old Pauline Cook, her patient, nearly a year ago.
Sixteenth Circuit Judge John Hayes III sentenced Walton, a 30-year-old mother of a 14-year-old son, to life in prison for murder Thursday night after a four-day trial. Walton also was sentenced to 30 years in prison for first-degree burglary and five years for unlawful exploitation of a vulnerable adult, abuse and neglect of a vulnerable adult resulting in death and eight counts of forgery.
