JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – George Peppard Landgraff, 33, was convicted Friday afternoon for his involvement in the murder of Lola Faulk. The defendant was found guilty of Murder in the First Degree and Armed Burglary with Assault or Battery.
In July 2009, Faulk’s grandson found his 70-year-old grandmother brutally beaten and shot to death inside of her home. The victim’s dog was also found dead on top of the victim.
The investigation revealed that Landgraff and two co-defendants broke into Faulk’s home to commit a burglary. Several items were taken from the home, including a large television. In the midst of the burglary, Faulk was shot multiple times and struck with a concrete block.
Landgraff now faces mandatory life in prison and will be sentenced the week of November 18.
Assistant State Attorney Jeff Moody prosecuted the case.
