EFFINGHAM COUNTY -- A Watson man may not serve the rest of his life in prison. Last month, Justin DeRyke was given that sentence after pleading guilty to the murder of his niece, Willow Long. DeRyke's attorney filed a motion stating the sentence wasn't justified. If a judge agrees, DeRyke could withdraw his guilty plea or be re-sentenced.
