Recently, a judge in Georgia sentenced Carly Suzanne Walden to life in prison for killing her mom, Andrea Walker, in 2019. She was convicted of murder, according to WSBTV. She won’t be parole eligible for 30 years.

Walden called police around 7 a.m. on April 29, 2019, and claimed a man killed her mom, according to WSBTV.

Walden said an unidentified man was responsible for Walker’s murder, according to the Covington News. Walden said she brought some men home from a party. When they got to the home, they tried to rape her and her mom.


An investigator asked her which way the men went, and Walden said some female friends of the men danced on top of the ceiling fan, according to the Covington News.

That led police to question her story and they detained her. During questioning at the police station, Walden confessed that she accidentally shot her mother, according to WSBTV. That statement was not allowed to be used during a trial after questions over whether she knew she was under arrest when she made them.

Walden was convicted after a four-day trial of charges including malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during a felony, possession of methamphetamine and possession of amphetamine.

"All murder cases are difficult, but those involving family bring with them additional difficulties," District Attorney Randy McGinley told the Covington News. "This conviction provides justice and some level of closure for Ms. Walker's family."
