Man gets life in prison for fatal north Florida home invasion
OCALA, Fla. (AP) — A man has been sentenced to life in prison plus another 30 years for a fatal home invasion in north Florida.
A Marion County judge sentenced 26-year-old Jolgar Desir on Friday. He was convicted Sunday of murder, attempted murder, home invasion robbery with a firearm and kidnapping with a firearm.
Authorities say 43-year-old Robert Jamerson was shot and killed at his Orange Lake home in August 2009. His younger brother, Terrence, also was shot but survived wounds to his shoulder and back.
Authorities believe Desir, whose fingerprint was found at the scene, was one of two men who had gone to the home looking for drugs.
The Ocala Star-Banner reports that the second man has not been caught.
