Rogue River man sentenced for breaking into convicted murderer’s home

garwoodMedford, Ore. — A Rogue River man accused of burglarizing the home of convicted killer Susan Monica learns his sentence Friday. Jarrod Garwood was convicted of attempted kidnapping and assault in March of this year, but was arrested again shortly after his release.

Garwood served 6 months for the attempted kidnapping and assault case, but now is headed back to prison for burglary and mail theft. He was arrested last October for burglarizing the home of convicted murderer Susan Monica. Monica was found guilty of killing two men, and then feeding their bodies to her pigs.

According to Jackson County Sheriff’s deputies they found several stolen items at Garwood’s Rogue River home. Attorneys say he also picked up a bag of mail that wasn’t his. During his sentencing Friday, Garwood asked the judge for another chance. The judge says he already had one.

“I really wanna get this together your honor,” Garwood said, “I really do and I need this opportunity to please prove to you that I can do this.”

“You tested positive, you pick up new charges, you’re associating with people you shouldn’t be associating with,” Judge Kelly Ravassipour said, “so we are going to proceed with sentencing today.”

Garwood was sentenced to a total of 2 and half years in prison, and 3 years of post prison supervision. He is also ordered to pay restitution.
