The Miami Herald reports 34-year-old Sean Condell was sentenced Wednesday. Jurors found him guilty last month of first-degree murder but didn’t recommend the death penalty.

Authorities say Condell and four other men targeted a north Miami-Dade home in October 2006 because they mistakenly believed a man named “Haitian Pete” was the boyfriend of the homeowner and kept his drug money there.

Chaquone Watson, and his mother, Carla Queeley, were fatally shot during the robbery, while two other women and two children were wounded.
