A Georgia man who tased his own young children in a vicious attack on his ex-girlfriend and her great-grandmother will spend the rest of his life in prison, the Cobb County District Attorney’s Office announced Thursday.

Antonio Maurice Gee was sentenced to life imprisonment plus 192 year for a December 2016 rampage at the Mableton house where the woman had been living with Gee ‘ s 1-year-old daughter and 5-month-old son.

“But for the grace of God and the Cobb County Police, this would have been a murder — cruel, mean and cruel,” chief assistant district attorney John Melvin said in a statement. “I am grateful to the jury and Judge Green to ensure that this animal never sees the light of day as a free man again.”

Officials say Gee – who have been ordered by a previous case to have no contact with the woman and to stay away from the goods, broke in her home and ravaged her great-grandmother. The woman was also stabbed and suffered a broken jaw, which required facial reconstruction surgery.

Later in the attack, Gee tried to stab his daughter, and further cut his ex-girlfriend as she tried to defend the baby, the officials said. Gee then knock out the woman’s teeth and tased her and the children, for the stealing of car keys, phones and credit cards that belonged to both the adults who live there.

A jury in the 2-day trial found Gee guilty of all 16 counts against him, including charges of armed robbery and ill-treatment of children.
