An Aurora man was sentenced to life in prison for shooting his sister’s boyfriend in the face for no apparent reason.
Travon Sanders, 34, was convicted in June of first-degree murder and sentenced July 21 to life without parole, according to a news release from the 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office.
On March 16, 2018, Sanders killed 35-year-old David Washington while Sanders’ sister and mother were in the home. The women told Aurora police detectives there did not seem to be an argument that preceded the shooting and Sanders did not say anything to Washington before pulling the trigger, the news release stated.
Washington lived in the home with the Sanders family. The night before the shooting, Sanders told his mother, “I’m sick of this,” and also had said he felt disrespected by his family, the news release said.
“The defendant acted out of jealousy and resentment when he murdered Mr. Washington in cold blood. We are thankful that Mr. Washington’s family has the justice they so deserve,” Senior Deputy District Attorney Kristine Hayden was quoted as saying in the news release.
