LOS ANGELES -- A woman charged in the brutal attack on a 92-year-old grandfather out walking in Willowbrook was sentenced to 15 years in prison Thursday.
Laquisha Jones, 30, of Los Angeles was charged with felony elder abuse in December.

Jones had a prior conviction for making criminal threats and had been on probation when she attacked Rodriguez.
