A man who followed an elderly Wethersfield woman home from grocery shopping on June 22, 2012 and robbed her has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.
Eugene Edwards Jr. was sentenced today.
Police said he approached the woman in her garage when she returned home from Stop & Shop on Town Line Road in Rocky Hill, stole her money and jewelry and fled in a white car.
Police said they found fingerprints on the vehicle, police said, and Edwards was charged with home invasion, first-degree robbery, second-degree larceny and assault on an elderly person.
A jury found Edwards guilty on Nov. 6.
