MIAMI (AP) - A man convicted of executing five men during a drug theft at a South Florida apartment has been sentenced to death.
A Miami-Dade judge sentenced 32-year-old Tavares Calloway on Friday. A jury found him guilty last year of five counts of first-degree murder and one count each of robbery with a firearm, kidnapping and burglary of an occupied dwelling. That same jury later recommended the death penalty.
In January 1997, prosecutors say Calloway and another man stormed a Liberty City apartment, hogtied five men, taped their mouths shut and removed their pants. Calloway shot each man in the head.
Calloway's accomplice, Antonio Clark, was convicted in 2008 and is serving life in prison.
