Judge in the 20th Circuit Court of Florida sentenced Timothy Dortch, Jr., to life in prison on Monday afternoon.
Dortch, 24-years-old, was found guilty of second-degree murder with a firearm, shooting at within or into a vehicle, and second degree aggravated assault.
The conviction was ruled in May 2016.
It was a result of an altercation between the two men that began after a small argument. Dortch proceeded to murder Tyrone Morse, 41-years-old, a well-known person within the Harlem Heights community.
Following the murder, Dortch lead police on a statewide manhunt. He was later captured by a U.S. Marshals fugitive task force team at a Motel 6 in Spring Hill.
He was previously arrested for homicide, according to Lee County arrest records, in 2009.
