A Georgia man who tased his own young children during a vicious attack on his ex-girlfriend and her great-grandmother will spend the rest of his life in prison, the Cobb County District Attorney's Office announced Thursday.
Antonio Maurice Gee was sentenced to life in prison plus 192 years for a December 2016 rampage at the Mableton home where the woman had been living with Gee's 1-year-old daughter and 5-month-old son.
"But for the grace of God and the Cobb County Police, this would have been a murder -- vicious, vile and savage," chief assistant district attorney John Melvin said in a statement. "I am thankful to the jury and to Judge Green for ensuring that this animal never sees the light of day as a free man again."
Officials say Gee – who had already been ordered from a prior case to have no contact with the woman and to stay away from the property – broke into her home and pummeled her great-grandmother. The woman was also stabbed and suffered a broken jaw, which required facial reconstruction surgery.
Later in the attack, Gee attempted to stab his daughter, and further cut his ex-girlfriend as she tried to defend the baby, officials said. Gee then knocked out the woman’s teeth and tased her and both children before stealing car keys, phones and credit cards that belonged to both adults living there.
A jury in the 2-day trial found Gee guilty of all 16 counts facing him, including charges of armed robbery and cruelty to children.
