A Liberty man will spend the rest of his life behind bars for the beating death of his elderly neighbor. 

Thirty-four-year-old Sean Clemens plead guilty Friday to aggravated murder, aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary, arson and tampering with evidence in the death of 84-year-old Jane Larue Brown. 

One of Brown's daughters, Cynthia Jakubick, said that many will call Clemens a monster, but she wouldn't use that word. "Some have called him a monster. I don't use that word. I don't have a word to describe him and I won't waste my energy trying to think of one," said Jakubick. 

Cynthia also said that even though the legality portion of this case is over the family and community will still feel impacted by the choices Clemens made. "Yea, today the legal part of it is over. But we will continue to live with the effects of what he did. People will continue to talk about it in hushed tones around us. They'll point at our house when they drive by, and where his house stood, and retell the story of how a guy who lived there killed his elderly neighbor lady in her bed," said Jakubick. 

If Clemens had gone to trial and been convicted, he could have faced the death penalty. 

According to the affidavit filed in April of 2017, Clemens told Detective Sgt. Mike Yannuci that he used a sledgehammer to break into the sliding glass door of Jane Larue Brown's home on the 500 block of Churchill-Hubbard Road. 

Clemens then told the detective that he grabbed a hand shovel from the garden and went into the home where he found Brown still sleeping. He said after beating Brown, he got a knife from the kitchen and cut her throat.

The affidavit says a report from the Trumbull County Coroner found injuries and bruises on Brown that indicated that she attempted to defend herself before she died.

Brown's other daughter, Kathleen Graham, said that Clemens has ruined many lives. "You have ruined many lives, including your own," said Graham.

Kathleen also said that Clemens will have to live with her mother's death and that she will never forgive Clemens. "When you close your eyes you will see Larue as you left her. I thank God I don't have to see that now. Something led you, the wolf, to the prey, my mom, and for that, I will never forgive you," said Graham.

The prosecuting attorney, Chris Becker, said that even though this homicide case has taken a little bit longer than usual he thinks that the victims have received a bit of closure knowing Clemens will spend the rest of his life in prison. "I think the victims are relieved and get some closure from coming to court, worrying about appeals, worrying about what may happen down the road, and knowing that this defendant will spend the rest of his natural life in prison," Said Becker. 

Clemens plea deal means that he is very limited in what he can appeal in the future.
