SARASOTA, Florida (AP) - A southwest Florida man has been sentenced to life in prison for participating in a fatal robbery.

A Sarasota County judge sentenced 35-year-old Roy Couran on Wednesday after a jury found him guilty of second-degree murder.

Authorities say 34-year-old Jeff Hill was killed in January during an attempted robbery at a public housing complex in Newtown.

The Herald-Tribune in Sarasota reports that Hill's family members still want to see a second attacker brought to justice. They insist two men participated in the robbery, but no other arrests have been made.
