Florida Panhandle man gets life sentence for killing former boss at car dealership


PENSACOLA, Florida — A Florida Panhandle man has been sentenced to life in prison for fatally shooting his former boss.

An Escambia County judge sentenced Justin Taylor on Wednesday after a jury convicted him of first-degree murder.

Authorities say 7 Stars Auto owner Adnan Glelati was fatally shot in his office at the Pensacola car dealership in August 2013. Detectives traced the bullet back to a gun that had been purchased by Taylor.

The Pensacola News Journal ( ) reports that Taylor was on work release and had a lengthy criminal history at the time of the shooting. Prosecutors say Taylor gave multiple alibis during the investigation that didn't check out.
