JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A Jacksonville man was sentenced Friday to life in prison for a 2010 stray-bullet death.
Taurice Leonard Brown was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for the 2010 killing of Analiza Gobaton. Brown was also sentenced to 65 years in prison, with a 20-year minimum mandatory, for the attempted murder of another man involved in the shooting.
Brown was convicted in October on charges of murder in the first degree and attempted murder in the first degree.
On October 22, 2010, Gobaton, 41, was heading to her children's school for an awards program. The mother of three was at a red light at Blanding Boulevard near Transylvania Avenue when she was shot in the head.
The bullet that killed Gobaton was a stray bullet from a drug-related shooting at a home on Transylvania Avenue. Brown went to the home to sell cocaine. When he arrived, he got into a verbal argument with another drug dealer. Brown then started shooting at the other drug dealer.
