Hazelwood moved to Jackson prison after pleading guilty to teens’ murders

The man who murdered two teenagers behind a Roswell grocery store has been booked into Georgia Diagnostic and Classification State Prison in Jackson, according to the department of corrections. 

Jeffery Hazelwood, 20, pleaded guilty but mentally ill last week in the deaths of Natalie Henderson and Carter Davis behind the King Plaza Publix on Aug. 1. He was then sentenced to life without parole.
