JACKSONVILLE, Fla.-- It's been a long time coming from the Gobaton family. Taurice Brown was found guilty of killing their beloved Analisa.
A jury convicted Taurice Brown of Murder in the First Degree and Attempted Murder in the First Degree.
According to police, Taurice Brown fired gunshots down Transylvania Avenue after a botched drug deal. Both his companion in the car and the man he was aiming for fired shots as well. Prosecutors say one of those shots struck Analisa in the head as she waited at the stoplight on Blanding Boulevard.
She was a mother of three.
"She was minding her own business, and all of a sudden a bullet from that man or his cohort went through her window," one prosecutor said.
Several witnesses were called to the stand, including the man who originally bought crack cocaine from Brown. That man told the jury Brown was angry after he tried to buy drugs from a rival dealer. The man said Brown fired those shots during a fight with that rival drug dealer.
Brown will be sentenced on November 15. He could spend the rest of his life in prison.
