A Duval County judge on Monday sentenced 19-year-old Marcus Lamont Brown after he pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and armed robbery.

Authorities say 28-year-old Lorenzo Williams was found dead in a field field at East 27th Street and Evergreen Avenue on Dec. 27, 2012.

Police say Williams was lured to a vacant house near West 22nd and Silver streets to be robbed. He was then taken to the field and shot.

Prosecutors believe Brown was the one who shot Williams. An accomplice, Eric Vincent Hill, who was charged with accessory after the fact was sentenced to 15 years in prison in November.
