A Cobb jury returned Wednesday afternoon a guilty verdict in an armed robbery case involving a Mableton restaurant.
District Attorney Vic Reynolds announced Thursday that 44-year-old Kenneth Andre Eason of Fayetteville was convicted of armed robbery for his role in the Oct. 28, 2012, holdup of a Waffle House on Six Flags Drive in Mableton. Eason could get life in prison when he is sentenced at 10:30 a.m. on Oct. 11.
Charges are still pending against two codefendants in the case, Shantel Monique Washington and Charles B. Anderson.
“Armed robberies … are extremely serious crimes that not only harm individuals, but threaten businesses large and small,” Reynolds said in Thursday’s news release. “We will continue to prosecute these crimes aggressively and seek lengthy prison sentences on the individuals convicted of these offenses.”
