PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A 28-year-old man has been convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison for a cold-blooded double killing in 2008.
The victims, an African immigrant couple, had come to Philadelphia in search of the American dream.
Philadelphia prosecutor Bill Davis says Donald Guy and co-defendant Thomas Foggy, who pleaded guilty and cooperated with authorities, entered the “Urban Wear” mom-and-pop clothing store in Feltonville four years ago and announced a robbery.
Both Guy and Foggy were armed, Davis says:
“Inexplicably, Donald Guy started shooting, and he shot Amissi, the husband, three times in the head — shot him in the face and twice in the head — and then proceeded to approach the wife. He had no more bullets left in his gun, so he dropped it, grabbed the gun from Thomas Foggy and shot Bintou Soumare, the wife, twice, including once in the head.”
The victims were unarmed. The haul was a pack of undershirts.
Guy told the judge before he left the courtroom that he’s not worried about the sentence. He plans to appeal.
