Man sentenced in Twiggs murder


Marcus Hoskins was sentenced Monday morning to life with the possibility of parole after he plead guilty to killing his wife, Hurley Danielle Hoskins in January 2013.

Hoskins made the plea at at hearing before Judge H. Gibbs Flanders at the Twiggs County Superior Court.

At the time of the murder, Hoskins and his wife had been heading back to Bibb County from from visiting family at a Cobb County hospital. Twiggs County Sheriff Darren Mitchum said the two had been arguing about marital issues. Hoskins' wife was behind the wheel.

That's when Hoskins forced his wife at gunpoint to drive to the Bond Swamp National, made her get out of the car and walk down a hiking trail about 50 yards, and shot her multiple times in the torso.

Hoskins was charged with murder, kidnapping, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Hoskins spent most of the past 26 years behind bars for multiple charges, before getting out most recently in May 2012, less than a year before the murder.
