Rosie Courdle Gaskins was murdered in 2010. Her body was found inside her car on a rural road near Willacoochee March 7, 2010, Moore said.
Gaskins was sentenced to life plus 10 years, said District Attorney Dick Perryman.
“I’m so pleased we were able to give the Courdle family some closure and justice, in this horrible, cold and calculated murder of Rosie,” Perryman said.
Moore said Gaskins was found guilty of malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault (family violence), possession of firearm during commission of a felony and possession of firearm by a convicted felon.
Gaskins was arrested in 2014, four years after the murder.
“After Rosie Gaskins’ body was found in a car in Willacoochee, the case went unsolved for four years,” said Sheriff Moore.
Clarence Gaskins was married to Rosie Gaskins at the time of her death, but they were separated, Sheriff Moore said.
