Man beats his mum to death two days after being released from Prison after 30-year murder sentence

Two days after completing a 30-year prison sentence for a 1984 murder conviction, a New Jersey man allegedly killed his 64-year-old mother.
On Wednesday, Steven Pratt, 47, pleaded guilty to manslaughter, admitting his role in his mother's beating death, police say.

A statement from prosecutors obtained by PEOPLE confirms Pratt, an Atlantic City resident who lived with his mother, repeatedly struck his mother Gwendolyn Pratt in the head the morning of Oct. 12, 2014. Police responded to the Pratt home that morning and found Gwendolyn's lifeless body inside.

The statement says officers immediately took Pratt into custody and an autopsy later revealed the victim died from blunt force trauma to the head.

Pratt faces 25 more years behind bars when he is sentenced within the next few months, police say.

On Oct. 10, 2014, Pratt was released from a New Jersey prison, where he'd spent the previous three decades for the fatal shooting of Michael Anderson.

When he was 15, Anderson caught Pratt smoking marijuana with friends and confronted the boy.

During that incident, Pratt struck Anderson in the face with a lead pipe. After being hit, Anderson retreated, but hours later, Pratt knocked on his apartment's door. When he opened it, Pratt shot Anderson.

They should just give this fool life sentence because if he's free again he will still strike another innocent person to death. He's not fit to live outside the prison.

She literally spawned a monster. RIP. I'm also seeing this as a bad reflection of the prison system and how it doesn't reform people. He'd been in 30 years and came out worse off. There should have been some rehabilitative component to his time, in that he comes out after all those years capable of doing much more than just to kill again.

If only he was executed for the first murder his mother wouldn't have died. Death penalty is necessary in some situations. An evil child, better she never had any, that such from hell.

Those commenting, do you know anything about the prison system in the United States? He was 15 when he was sentenced. Meaning he was a minor. First he is black there are 15 white males who have done worse crimes than him then. The prison system only gets to make them miserable instead of rehabilitating them. Then they come out of jail the same way they came out.
Were his crimes terrible? Yes. Did he deserve to spend 30 years in jail? Not really. Only if better services to rehabilitate him were provided.

Anonymous said...

Why should they give him another 25 years? He deserves life in prison because he is a danger to the public.
