Cobb District Attorney Vic Reynolds announced a Marietta man faces a mandatory sentence of life without parole after being convicted as a recidivist of armed robbery and other charges.

Jurors deliberated two hours Thursday before finding Calvin Bernard Hill, 36, guilty of armed robbery, theft by taking, burglary and kidnapping in the Feb. 29, 2012 incident at a house on Wood Hollow Drive in Marietta. The crime scene is near Interstate 75 and Windy Hill Road.

Assistant District Attorney Theresa M. Schiefer said the case hinged largely on cell-phone data.

Cobb Superior Court Judge J. Stephen Schuster set sentencing for 9:30 a.m. April 1. Due to Hill’s prior felony convictions, he faces a mandatory sentence of life without parole.

Hill is represented by attorney Ted Johnson of Atlanta. The defense did not put up any witnesses during the trial, which began Tuesday.
