Georgia Man’s Murderer Sentenced to Life in Houston Carjacking Case
Ronnie Scott

The perpetrator behind the murder of 24-year-old Donnie Glover from Georgia has been sentenced to life in prison. Ronnie Davontay Scott, 29, was convicted for the premeditated killing that occurred during a carjacking scheme in Houston on February 23, 2021.

Glover, who had recently graduated from college and moved to Houston just a few months prior, fell victim to a calculated plan orchestrated by Scott and an accomplice. The scheme involved luring Glover to a secluded area behind an apartment complex with the intention of robbing him of his money and stealing his orange Dodge Charger.

Despite Glover’s efforts to seek help by calling 911 as he was being pursued by his assailants, the situation took a tragic turn when gunshots were heard during the call. Upon police arrival, Glover’s lifeless body was discovered, marking a devastating loss for his loved ones back in Georgia.

Text messages exchanged between Glover and the woman involved in the scheme, along with statements from witnesses, aided detectives in identifying the perpetrators. Scott ultimately pleaded guilty to murder in exchange for a life sentence, sparing himself from the possibility of facing life in prison without parole for capital murder.

The sentencing brings some closure to Glover’s family and friends in Georgia, who mourn the loss of a promising young man who had ventured to Houston in pursuit of his dreams.
