(Nashville, TN) -- A man who once vowed to live a life of poverty is now more than 100-million dollars richer thanks to Powerball. Fifty-eight-year-old Roy Cockrum is a former monk who left the order five years ago to take care of his parents. At a news conference yesterday, he said he offered a quick prayer when he realized he was the winner of a monster jackpot. He plans to take a modest amount for himself and give the rest away to charities.
