Jul. 18, 2017
PUNTA GORDA, Fla. (AP) — A Florida man has been sentenced to life in prison for a fatal shooting and arson at a convenience store.
A State Attorney's Office news release says 29-year-old James Russo was sentenced Monday. He was convicted last month of second-degree murder and first-degree arson.
Authorities say Russo went to a Punta Gorda 7-Eleven in November 2015 and shot the store clerk, 18-year-old Kyle Farishian. Russo then poured gasoline on Farishian and set him on fire. The attack was captured on the store's surveillance video.
