The man charged in the carjacking of an elderly woman entered a guilty plea in Kanawha County Circuit Court on Thursday afternoon.
Brent Prouse, 24, pleaded guilty to second-degree robbery. Prouse is accused of carjacking a vehicle from Mildred Carper, 80, at the Charleston Area Medical Center parking garage Oct. 12.
He faces the possibility of five to 18 years in prison when he is sentenced in December.
Police have arrested a man they believed carjacked an elderly woman in the parking garage at CAMC General.
Investigators believe Brent Prouse, from St. Albans, stole 80-year-old Mildred Carper's SUV last Friday. Officers believe Prouse was walking around the parking garage looking for a victim. They say he ripped the keys out of Carper's hand and drove off.
Police found Carper's 2002 blue Jeep Liberty in St. Albans around 2am Tuesday.
Investigators say they were able to identify Prouse because family members saw his picture on the news Monday night.
