Mobley in state prison

MONROE, Ga. — Jerome Ray Mobley, convicted last week of killing his wife, is now a state inmate.

Mobley began his incarceration Thursday, one day after Chief Judge John Ott sentenced him to life in prison plus 75 years in Walton County Superior Court.

Mobley was convicted of the death of his estranged wife, Katie, on April 18. He shot her in her home near Social Circle in the presence of their two children.

Ott sentenced Mobley to life in prison for murder, 10 years for aggravated stalking, 20 years each on two counts of cruelty to children, five years for possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and 20 years for burglary.

As with all state inmates, Mobley began his sentence at the Georgia Diagnostic and Classification Prison in Jackson.
