Jillian Johnson has pleaded guilty to the murder of 71-year-old Gloria Jean Prince and 53-year-old Gloria Marie Booker, and has been sentenced to life in prison, as announced by Tarrant County Criminal District Attorney Phil Sorrels.

The tragic incident occurred on October 25, 2020, when Johnson, 44, was residing at the home of Prince and her daughter, Booker, in Grand Prairie. Due to her disruptive behavior, Johnson was instructed to move out. In response, she became agitated and fatally stabbed both women.

Johnson's guilty plea was entered last week, and the court handed down a life sentence.

On Wednesday morning, during the sentencing hearing, Tye Jones, the daughter of Gloria Marie Booker, delivered a victim impact statement. Tearfully, she addressed Johnson, saying, "On October 25, 2020, you shattered my family's life. You stabbed two of the most important people in my life."

Jones revealed that she relies on her faith in God to find the strength to cope with each day without her mother, who was not only her parent but her closest friend. She expressed that neither her mother nor her grandmother deserved to meet such a tragic end.

The Grand Prairie Police Department conducted the investigation into the case.
