A 26-year-old Houston man, who was already in prison for raping two women, was sentenced late Wednesday to 60 years in prison for murder, Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg announced.
“This defendant, who raped two women by gunpoint and shot a young father for money, was a threat to the community and deserves to spend decades in prison,” Ogg said. “Gun violence is pervasive in every neighborhood, and we work hard to get these cases to trial so that families have some closure.”
Willie Robert Scott, 26, raped two women at gunpoint as they were moving into an apartment near Scott’s home on February 20, 2015.
Eight months later, on October 23, 2015, he fatally shot Dedrick Coleman, a 20-year-old father of a two-year-old son, as Coleman walked home from a neighborhood store. Scott took Coleman’s money and cell phone.
