A Montgomery County jury convicted a repeat violent offender Friday of murder, felonious assault, aggravated robbery and having weapons under disability in the shooting death of a Navy veteran last year.
Jermaine Moore, 30, shot and killed Scott A. Mullins on Nov. 18, 2012 during a robbery attempt on Nottingham Road in Harrison Twp.
Mullins, 52, was found by Montgomery County Sheriff’s’s deputies in his car and initially survived the attack. He spent 93 days at Miami Valley Hospital before he died on Feb. 19.
Moore’s murder trial began Monday with prosecutors saying the defendant had confessed to the crime.
The jury convicted him on all counts, including three-year firearm sentencing specifications and additional specifications because he is a repeat violent offender.
According to court records Moore spent seven years in prison for a robbery conviction in 2000. He was also convicted of trafficking in marijuana in 2008.
In his obituary in February, Mullins’ family described his travels and honors while serving in the Navy and said, “He put up a strong fight to live,” after sustaining the gunshot wound.
Moore is scheduled for a sentencing hearing on Oct. 17. He could be sentenced to between 18 years and life in prison.
A spokesperson for Montgomery County Prosecutor Mat Heck said prosecutors are advocating for the maximum sentence.
