GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas (TCD) — A 44-year-old woman will spend the rest of her life behind bars for fatally stabbing a mother and her daughter following an altercation about her living situation in 2020.
On Nov. 1, Tarrant County Criminal District Attorney Phil Sorrells announced that a judge sentenced Jillian Johnson to life in prison after she pleaded guilty to killing 71-year-old Gloria Prince and 53-year-old Gloria Booker.
According to Sorrells, on Oct. 25, 2020, Johnson, who lived with the two victims, fatally stabbed Prince and Booker after they told her to move out “due to her behavior.”
In court, Booker’s daughter Tye Jones addressed Johnson, stating, “On October 25, 2020, you shattered my family’s life. You stabbed two of the most important people in my life.”
Jones reportedly said she “relies on God to give her the strength to make it through each day without her mother, who was her best friend.”
According to Sorrells, Jones continued and said, “Neither her mother nor her grandmother deserved to die the way they did.”
Johnson is in custody at Lon Evans Corrections Center, records show.
