COBB COUNTY, Ga. -- A Powder Springs resident will spend the rest of his life in prison after murdering a man during a dispute over a parking space.
Harold Antonio Parks, 42, was sentenced Friday to life without the possibility of parole.
He was convicted of killing 27-year-old Terrence Washington Jr. at the Riverside Apartment Townhomes on Twin Hill Road in Austell.
The shooting happened Sept. 16, 2013. According to information presented in court, Parks became irate when he saw that Washington's girlfriend parked her car overnight in a spot near his apartment. Parks had a history of fighting with others over parking spaces outside his building.
Prosecutors said Parks was arguing with the girlfriend when Washington came outside to intervene. Parks returned to his apartment, grabbed a handgun, went back outside and shot the victim 18 times.
