Man sentenced in neighborhood robberies

CHARLESTON, W.Va. - A man who burglarized Charleston neighborhoods and preyed on the elderly for years has been sentenced again.

Gary Wayne Mullins, 51, is already serving a 25-year sentence for kidnapping and stealing money from a Kanawha City man. That victim, 84-year-old George Jacobs, died unexpectedly a day after he testified against Mullins at his trial last year.

On Tuesday, Kanawha Circuit Judge Charles King sentenced Mullins to another two to 10 years for robberies and break-ins in the Woodbridge neighborhood in 2011.

That sentence will be served after the sentence he is currently serving. In the Woodbridge thefts, Mullins entered a number of homes and stole items and in some cases tried to convince residents he was a FedEx driver.
