Joyce Hardin Garrard, the diminutive grandmother whom prosecutors depicted as the “drill sergeant from hell,” stood before the judge, and told him if she could have anything in the world, it would be to have her granddaughter Savannah back with her today.
Garrard gripped the hand of her defense attorney as Etowah County Circuit Judge Billy Ogletree said he would uphold a jury’s recommendation of life without parole, rather than death by lethal injection.
Prosecutors said Garrard forced 9-year-old Savannah Hardin to run for hours after school after Garrard became enraged over the child’s lie. More
