BALTIMORE - A pair of Baltimore men will likely spend the rest of their lives in prison for murdering a man, stealing his car and then burning the vehicle in an attempt to conceal their crime.
Don Pulley and Terrence Rollins-Bey were sentenced in Baltimore City Circuit Court to 95 and 110 years, respectively for the June 24, 2012 murder of Deangelo Bess.
According to the Baltimore City State’s Attorney, officers discovered Bess in the 1000 block of North Central Ave. suffering from gunshot wounds to the head. Pulley, 31, and Rollins-Bey, 25, were identified through surveillance video footage. Surveillance video captured the victim's car being set on fire.
Their motive remains unknown.
Pulley and Rollins-Bey were convicted on Sept. 3 of second-degree murder, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm, arson, conspiracy to commit arson, and theft of the victim's vehicle.
"We are profoundly gratified that these individuals will not have another opportunity to do harm in our city," said State's Attorney Gregg L. Bernstein in a statement. "As always, I hope this helps the victim's loved ones to achieve a sense of closure."
