Source: LPD Source: LPD

A Lubbock man is headed to prison, with no chance of getting out.

A Lubbock County jury found Darold Simmons guilty of capital murder after deliberating less than two hours.

Prosecutors said Simmons planned the attack on Ross Bennie Mosley, 72, as the victim walked home after playing cards last February. They say he robbed the elderly man, stabbed him, and then left him to die.

Simmons is the first capital murderer to be handed a life sentence without the possibility of parole.
