Teen faces 65 years in prison for murder
Rochester, N.Y. - A 19-year-old faces 65 years to life in prison for killing one man and shooting his own brother.
Dayquane Coley was found guilty Tuesday of murder in the second degree, attempted murder in the second degree, assault in the second degree and criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree.
Coley shot and killed Steven Killings on November 27, 2013 at the intersection of Colvin and Maple Streets in Rochester
Coley also shot his brother David Donaldson.
Investigators said Coley got in a car for a drug deal. During the transaction, Coley shot Killings four time in the head and Donaldson once in the head.
"This is a very sad case of a young man killing another young man over $350," said Assistant District Attorneys Kyle Steinebach.
A jury was unable to reach a unanimous verdict on charges related to an alleged robbery in the car.
Therefore, Coley could be retried on those charges.
Killings was an East High graduate and worked as a janitor at St. Mary's church.
Members of the church sat with the victim's mom in court Tuesday.
"I just truly miss my baby so much. It's heartbreaking. There's not a day that my family and his friends do not think about him, not a day," said his mother, Belinda Parson.
Coley is being held in the Monroe County Jail until sentencing on September 16.
