GAINESVILLE, Florida – Two people were sentenced to life in prison after being convicted of murdering a bystander during a love triangle dispute. A third person was sentenced to spend a dozen years behind bars.
On Wednesday, an Alachua County judge sentenced Doug Heath and Martesha Johnson to life in prison after a jury convicted the duo of first-degree murder. Jasmine Chantell Webb, was convicted of manslaughter.
On May 17, 2021, Prosecutors say Dough and Martesha mistakenly killed, Tyerune Blocker, in Northeast Alachua County while they were attempting to shoot another man who was dating Jasmine.
Heath, Johnson, and Webb were involved in a love triangle. Webb began a relationship with Derrick Williams which caused conflict with the other members of the group.
Heath and Johnson decided that William had to go. While attempting to shoot at Williams they hit Blocker who was an innocent bystander who just so happened to be at the wrong place and the wrong time.
