George County Man Gets Life For Teen's Murder

A George County man will spend life in prison for killing a Lucedale teen.

Michael Latavian Smith, 22, was convicted Thursday in the shooting death of Joanna Eubanks, whom he'd been dating a few months.

The 19-year-old was found dead inside Smith's home August 11, 2004. Prosecutors told the jury the day Eubanks died, she told her mother she was going to break up with him.

The jury deliberated two hours before convicting Smith.
