110 Year Sentence for Greenwood Robbery

GREENWOOD, MS (Ben Caxton) — A Greenwood man has been sentenced to 110 years in prison in connection with an armed robbery four years ago. On February 9, 2015, then 27-year-old Corey Taylor, and 22-year-old Jeremy Jermaine Carter, along with a driver who has never been identified, left Itta Bena planning on robbing a store in Greenwood. They ended up at Skelton’s U-Haul on Grenada Boulevard. Once inside they cut and stabbed two women in their faces and stole $110 in cash and their cellphones. Carter was sentenced to 25 years in prison in May 2018 for his part in the robbery. Taylor, who pled guilty in April to one count of conspiracy to commit armed robbery, two counts of armed robbery and two counts of attempted murder, was sentenced last week to 20 years on each count, to run consecutively. Both men had previous felony convictions at the time of the robbery.
