December 5, 2019 - Olajuwon PERRY Sentenced to Consecutive Life Sentences in 2013 Sanford Robbery Murder

Today (Dec 5) Judge Debra Nelson sentenced Olajuwon PERRY (33) to Consecutive Life sentences for his role in the Robbery and Murder of Marcus Killingsworth (33) in 2013. After a four day trial that ended on November 21, 2019, a jury found PERRY guilty of First Degree Premeditated Murder with a Firearm (CF), and Robbery with a Firearm while Inflicting Death (F1 PBL). 
On March 27, 2013, shortly after 10 pm, Sanford Police responded to the street in front of a home on West 12th Street where they found Killingsworth shot to death. After months of investigation and tremendous cooperation from the Goldsboro community, Sanford investigators ultimately arrested PERRY and a second defendant Anthony Lamar BARNES (31), for the murder.
BARNES was convicted by a jury in November of 2015 of First Degree Felony Murder and Attempted Robbery with a Firearm. He was then sentenced to Life plus 15 years by Judge Kenneth Lester Jr.
In a statement after the today's sentencing Assistant State Attorney Jim Carter, who prosecuted both men said, "I'm grateful for the verdict of the jury and sentence imposed by the Court." He then added "The Killingsworth family has endured years of emotional trauma and I hope this outcome finally delivers them some closure and justice on behalf of Marcus."
PERRY remains in custody at the Seminole County Jail awaiting transfer to the Central Florida Reception Center to begin serving his sentence.
