WINSTON-SALEM, NC (AP) -- A North Carolina jury has sentenced a man to death for killing a 77-year-old Meals on Wheels volunteer and to life without parole for beating one of her clients to death. The Winston-Salem Journal reported that 40-year-old Timothy Hartford was sentenced Friday for killing Anne Magness. The jury sentenced Hartford to life in prison without parole in the beating death of 64-year-old Bob Denning. Hartford was convicted of murder, robbery and trying to kill 81-year-old Bill Magness. Prosecutors say they'll seek the death penalty for Hartford and his then-girlfriend, Ashley Kristine Smith. Smith's trial has not started. Authorities say Hartford and Smith were robbing Denning at his home when Magness and her husband arrived with Denning's lunch. --- Information from: Winston-Salem Journal, (Copyright 2010 by The Associated Press.
