This nog and his accomplice (also black, shockingly enough) just burst into the home and demanded money at gunpoint.
That’s pretty brazen, even for a bunch of darkies.
After two and a half hours of deliberation, a jury on Thursday decided that a 22-year-old man charged with two counts of first-degree murder was guilty.
As the clerk read the verdict aloud, the victims’ families were emotional.
“We did it. Now he can rest in peace,” said Janey Fockler, whose husband, Andy, and son, Bailey Zylo, were shot and killed by two gunmen the morning of Jan. 29, 2017.
John Zylo said he wanted to thank the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, especially then-Detective Aaron Levy, who is now a sergeant.
The jury began deliberations at 11:47 a.m. and at 2:17 p.m. announced it had reached a verdict. Thirteen minutes later, the clerk read out the verdicts.
Emanuel Angelo Tuggerson, wearing shirt, tie and dress pants, told Circuit Judge Anthony Tatti he did not want to wait for a pre-sentence investigation. Tatti then sentenced Tuggerson to life in prison.
The prosecution says Tuggerson and another man entered the home and Tuggerson kicked open a bedroom door. Inside, he demanded cash and opened fire on Fockler, killing him.
Another man is accused of entering Zylo’s room and shooting the teen in the head as he lay in bed.
Tuggerson took a safe that contained two handguns. He and his accomplice then fled through a sliding glass door, the prosecution said.
The trials for Tuggerson and Richard, who is accused of being the getaway driver, are being held separately because Richard made statements implicating Tuggerson, prosecutors said.
Richard and Tuggerson have been held at the jail since their arrests.
