According to an October 2014 story from Philly.com, Gwendolyn Pratt had recently hosted a welcome-home party for her son.

Gwendolyn Pratt’s brother told the news outlet his sister had been a Resorts Casino Hotel worker going back to 1989.

Her sibling also revealed that upon Steven Pratt’s release from prison, Gwendolyn Pratt took him to an IHOP restaurant.

In October 2014, Pratt told a judge through tears after killing his mother that he was guilty and didn’t want a trial.

In a video filmed at the time by the Press of Atlantic City, the judge told Pratt: ‘Now sir, you have a lawyer? Or you may use a public defender.’

Pratt told the judge: ‘I have nobody.’

The judge also asked Pratt if he knew about the bail amount.

Pratt at the time replied: ‘It doesn’t even matter, sir.’

Sobbing, Pratt said at one point during the arraignment: ‘I’m sorry. I have failed.’

Pratt was 15 when he shot and killed his next-door neighbor in 1984. He was tried as an adult and was convicted of murder in 1986

Steven Pratt, 47, must serve 85 percent of a 25-year prison sentence before he’ll be eligible for parole.

Pratt was 15 when he shot and killed his next-door neighbor Michael Anderson in an apartment building in 1984. He was tried as an adult and was convicted of murder in 1986.

According to court records, Pratt and Anderson argued after Pratt and some of his friends refused to leave an apartment hallway where they were noisily hanging out.

Pratt went back to Anderson’s apartment with a lead pipe, but Anderson took the pipe away from Pratt and bloodied his face, the records show.

Pratt then returned with a borrowed handgun and shot Anderson in the face and shoulder, the court records show. Anderson, who Pratt said acted like a father to him, died days after the shooting.
