2 Get Life in Prison After Fatal Florida Mall Shooting
MIAMI-- Two men convicted of charges arising from the shooting death of an armored truck guard at a suburban Miami mall have been sentenced to life in prison.
A federal judge in Miami sentenced 25-year-old Emmanuel Maxime and 26-year-old Dwight Carter on Tuesday.
Maxime was convicted in August of conspiracy, robbery and using a firearm in connection with the robbery. Carter was convicted a month earlier on counts of using a firearm in connection with the robbery, drug trafficking and causing the death.
Authorities said 51-year-old Carlos Alvarado, who worked two security jobs to support his family, was killed in the Dec. 1, 2008 shooting at the Dadeland Mall.
In February, two women who served as lookouts were each sentenced to about 20 years in prison.
