A 25-year-old Wilmington man who, along with an accomplice who was 14 years old at the time, robbed a convenience store then shot the clerk in the head, will go to prison for 35 years.
According to Delaware Department of Justice officials, Devonte Dorsett was sentenced for shooting and killing 64-year-old Santanu Muhuri in January 2017, after he robbed the Lancaster Market in the 100 block of North Clayton Street in Wilmington's Hilltop section.
Dorsett pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, two counts possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, and first-degree robbery in May 2018.
The juvenile accomplice pleaded guilty in February 2018 to criminally negligent homicide, first-degree robbery, and second-degree conspiracy. He was sentenced to three years at a juvenile detention facility followed by an aftercare program.
Jurisdiction over the juvenile was extended until he reached the age of 21, at request of the state.
