Man sentenced to 3 life terms in Golden Corral murders

Avery Wood Jr. sentenced for involvement in armed robbery, murders

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.
