Man accused of killing grandmother to get sanity hearing

Posted: Updated:
LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

The man accused of killing his grandmother will get a sanity hearing.

The Calcasieu District Attorney's Office has backed off its opposition to a sanity hearing for Carl Webb Jr.

Webb is accused of killing his 75-year-old grandmother, Helen, in 2009.

Webb's defense says a hearing is necessary based on conversations and to avoid reversal of a verdict.

Webb is already serving time for a weapons charge.
