Man Gets 20 Years To Life For Grandfather's Death

(HAMILTON, OH) -- A Butler County man has been sentenced to 20 years to life in prison for the death of his grandfather.

Prosecutors say Joseph Feltner beat his grandfather, Douglas Smith, during an argument in November 2006 at a storage unit in Fairfield. Feltner was supposedly angry with his grandpa because he was teasing him about a woman not calling him back.

Investigators say Feltner then locked his grandfather in the shed.

Smith eventually got out, but died of his injuries a few weeks later.
