(ConservativeHub.com) – A horrific incident that started in June of 2019 is finally seeing justice, though justice won’t bring the victim back. Kendal Battles of Alabama could have faced 10 years in prison, but one can only assume the brutal elements of his crime caused him to receive a sentence of life in prison instead for the murder of Marka “Willoe” Watkins.
She was a 20-year-old woman who was beaten first with a shotgun, then a baseball bat. A combination of blunt force trauma and strangulation ended the young woman’s life before she was dumped in a well and covered in concrete. But Battles isn’t the only one who will pay for his crimes. And this isn’t the first murder in the Watkins family.

In the late summer of 2015, Miranda Lynch, Watkins’ mother, was also beaten to death. Three women who wanted access to her SNAP benefits murdered Lynch, while four attackers beat Watkins because she allegedly stole a cell phone from one of the individuals. Joseph Nevels also faces murder charges, as does Monic Battles, wife of Kendal Battles. Devon Hall was also charged, after which he pleaded guilty and received a 30-year prison sentence, minus time served.
