Georgia men travel hundreds of miles to beat 90-year-old Tennesee woman

Three Georgia men are behind bars after the final conspirator in the trio was sentenced this week for a home invasion and brutal beating of a 90-year-old Tennessee woman.

A judge in Clarksville, Tenn., sentenced Colin Derek Savage, 34, to 48 years in prison Tuesday for his role in the October 2008 attack.

The victim, Oma England, is now 92. She suffered a broken eye socket and other injuries and might have died had she not been discovered in her Clarksville home the next morning by her caretaker, said Robert Nash, the assistant district attorney who prosecuted the case.

Her assailants put a pillowcase over her head, tied her to her bed with an extension cord and hit her over and over again.

"She was repeatedly beaten about her face, head and body and left there until the morning," Nash told the AJC. He said it was one of the most "egregious" and "tragic" crimes he'd seen as a prosecutor with the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office.

To commit the crime, Savage had to drive nearly 400 miles from his home in Jackson south of Atlanta. His accomplice in the attack, Rodney Keith Glover, 42, was sentenced in December to 50 years in prison after his trial ended with convictions on numerous counts.

Nash said Glover, of Stockbridge, arranged the attack after a third conspirator, John David Privette, 53, of Riverdale, told him that England was wealthy and kept cash and jewelry in her house.

Privette was related to England by marriage, Nash said. He pleaded guilty last year to his role in the conspiracy and was sentenced to 14 years in prison.

After entering England's house, Savage and Glover found no pile of cash and only costume jewelry.

Nash believes England was beaten in an attempt to extract information. "I think they were trying to get her to tell them where all the valuables were," he said.

Police in Clarksville followed a trail of evidence that led to Georgia.

The brutality of the attack on a defenseless, elderly woman spurred investigators, said Officer Jim Knoll, a spokesman for the Clarksville Police Department. "This hit close to home," he said, adding that the victim displayed strength in the face of adversity. "She was very strong. That's one of the things I remember."

Knoll said England was rescued on the morning of Oct. 15, 2008, when the woman who looks after her arrived and found the garage door open and the house in disarray. She called police, and a week later the three suspects were under arrest.

Clarksville detectives credited the Clayton County Police Department and other Georgia law enforcement agencies with help on the case.

Nash, the prosecutor, said the criminals left crucial evidence at the scene, including cigarette butts and latex gloves.

"The DNA match led to Georgia where we started talking to Mr. Privette, who led us to Mr. Glover," Nash said. Glover then fingered his buddy Savage, blaming him in court testimony for most of the beating.

Doctors testified in court that England was in "severe danger" of losing her life as a result of the attack. Nash said she recovered somewhat. She's lost some vision and some mobility, but he said he's unsure how much of that is a result of the injuries and how much is due to her age.

"She survived," he said. "She's a tough cookie."
