JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A man was sentenced Friday to three consecutive life sentences for his involvement in the armed robbery and murders of a man and his brother, state attorneys said.
Avery Damon Wood Jr., 21, was found guilty last month of two counts of first-degree felony murder and one count of armed robbery.
Wood, along with three co-defendants, met in July 2013 with Andrew Bohannon, 24, and his 19-year-old brother, Matthew Bohannon, at the Golden Corral on Normandy Boulevard.
The Bohannons believed Wood and his co-defendants were buying marijuana from them, state attorneys said.
When the brothers arrived in the parking lot, two of Wood's co-defendants approached them. Seconds later, Andrew and Matthew Bohannon were fatally shot in the head, according to state attorneys.
George Carter Jr. was convicted and sentenced to two life terms plus 40 years in prison for two counts of first-degree murder, one count of armed robbery and one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. State attorneys said Steven Bennett pleaded guilty and is awaiting sentencing on two counts of second-degree murder and one count of armed robbery.
The fourth co-defendant, Jallil Graves, is awaiting trial, according to state attorneys.
