Orange County man sentenced to life in prison for killing fiancee

ORLANDO – A central Florida man has been sentenced to life in prison for shooting his fiancee in the head while she was in bed with their 4-month-old daughter.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that an Orange County judge gave 29-year-old John DeJesus the mandatory sentence Friday after jurors convicted him of first-degree murder.

Authorities say DeJesus killed 22-year-old Yolizmarie DeJesus Borrero at their home in April 2014.

DeJesus claimed three home invaders killed his fiancee.
