OCALA, Fla. (AP) -- A man is facing life in prison after being convicted in a fatal home invasion in north Florida.
A Marion County jury found 26-year-old Jolgar Desir guilty Sunday of murder, attempted murder, home invasion robbery with a firearm and kidnapping with a firearm. The Ocala Star-Banner reports that prosecutors weren't seeking the death penalty, so he'll receive a mandatory life sentence at a May 3 hearing.
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 second man has not been caught.
