A man will serve 20 years in prison for killing a Miami fruit vendor in 2008.
Timothy Evans pleaded guilty Thursday for murdering 47-year-old of Mariem Frissolo.
Prosecutors say the fruit vendor got up early on a rainy day in 2008 to earn extra money for her son's birthday. Authorities said Evans and several other men pulled up behind her fruit truck and tried to rob her. When she tried to defend herself, authorities say they shot her four times and beat her savagely.
Evans' lawyers insist he is mentally retarded and can be seen falling asleep during a videotaped police confession. Attorney Scott Sakin said Evans was interrogated over the course of 11 hours.
The Miami Herald reports 33-year-old Evans will walk free from prison in 2028.
