Woman sentenced for random shooting of local mother
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A woman will spend 50 years behind bars for the random murder of a local mother.
In June 2012, Juanita Jordan shot and killed 26-year-old Marvette Littles while Littles was was stopped at a traffic light on University Boulevard.
Littles was shot through the window while sitting in the driver’s seat. Her 8-month-old daughter and fiancé were in the car at the time, but were not hurt.
Investigators say Littles did not know her killer. The random shooting was a case of mistaken identity. Jordan thought someone she knew was driving Littles’ car.
Jordan pleaded guilty to Second Degree Murder and was sentenced to 50 years in prison. That sentence includes a 50 year mandatory minimum, meaning Jordan will be unable to get out of prison early.
