John Calvin Sledge

48-year-old John Calvin Sledge, of Greenville, was convicted of murder on Wednesday, according to Thirteenth Circuit Solicitor Walt Wilkins.

Wilkins stated that Sledge was also charged with Possession of a Weapon During a Violent Crime and Unlawful Conduct Toward a Child.

He was sentenced to life for murder, five years for the weapon charge, and ten years for unlawful conduct toward a child, says Wilkins.

The life sentence makes Sledge ineligible for parole.
