Man sentenced for grandfather's death

A man police say beat his grandfather to death, because he asked him to take out the trash, now knows how long he'll spend in prison for the crime.

A Fayette County judge sentenced Franklin Arnett this afternoon to ten years in prison.

Arnett pleaded guilty to manslaughter in January.

The plea came after a judge found him competent to stand trial for the 2008 death of 78-year-old Taylor "Rocky" Arnett.
