2 teens get 40 years each for fatal robbery in Florida

September 14, 2019

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — Two Florida teens have been sentenced to 40 years in prison each for the fatal robbery of a taxi driver.

Court records show that the 15-year-old boy and 17-year-old boy were sentenced Thursday after pleading no contest to first-degree murder and robbery with a firearm.

Authorities say the two teens shot and killed 46-year-old Hinso Estriplet in April 2018 while he sat in his cab in Lehigh Acres. They fled the area in a vehicle driven by a 20-year-old man, who was previously sentenced to 20 years in prison.
