Convicted child killer Thomas “TJ” Greenwood was back in a Coffee County courtroom on Wednesday(June 20, 2012). He was found guilty of first-degree murder in April. The murder of 2-year old-Hayden Gage West occurred on March 9, 2010. He was sent to state prison for life with a possibility of parole after 51 years before being eligible.
Greenwood was in court Wednesday for a hearing about 2 charge, aggravated child neglect and aggravated child abuse. Lawyers wrangled over how those sentences should be served either concurrent or consecutive. Concurrent would be served at the same time as the possible 51 years. A consecutive term would be served after the 51 years
Circuit Court Judge Craig Johnson said he will take the arguments under advisement with a decision to be announced later.
