    OH - Julianna, 85, & Alan Grna, 43, brutally murdered, Akron, 11 July 2009

    A 32-year-old Akron man was sentenced Monday to life without parole for the 2009 murder of a mother and her son.

    Johnnie Cook, 32, was convicted of killing Julianna Grna, 85, and her son Alan Grna, 43, on July 11 at 4:30 a.m. last year inside their Akron home on Johnston Street by striking them multiple times in the head with a hammer-like object.

    Cook also stole the victims' car, cell phone, jewelry, firearms and credit cards.
