Jacob Pearman was found guilty of first-degree murder in the Valentine's Day 2013 death of his wife Carla and assault and child abuse of her then seven-year old son.
Murfreesboro Post contributor Sam Stockard reports Pearman, a former trainer at Murfreesboro Athletic Club, was sentenced to life in prison by Circuit Court Judge David Bragg after the jury rendered its verdict following some seven hours of deliberation.
Jurors found him guilty of first-degree murder, child abuse by kicking Maddox Thomas at their Kanatak Lane home more than two years ago and aggravated assault in the strangling of his stepson. A sentencing hearing is set March 2 on those convictions.
