The sentence has been determined for the man found guilty of a vicious attack on an elderly war veteran during a home invasion.

On Wednesday a Harris County jury found Charles Turner guilty of aggravated robbery, and on Thursday they determined he should spend 65 years in prison.

Turner was found guilty in the robbery and attack nearly two years ago that cost Korean War veteran Thomas Mixon an eye and his teeth. The possible sentence for aggravated robbery could have been anywhere from five years to life in prison.
