Clearwater, Florida - Yesterday a jury found a high powered executive for Jabil Circuit guilty of the 2008 shooting deaths of his wife and her lover.
Patrick Evans was in the middle of a divorce from Elizabeth, his wife of three years, when he busted into her Gulfport condo and found his estranged wife naked in the bed with her boyfriend, Gerry Taylor.
A 911 call was made from Elizabeth’s cordless phone, although no one speaks to the operator. In it you can hear Evans arguing with the pair before they are shot to death.
“Get on the bed,” Evans instructs the couple.
“Rick put the gun down. This is ridiculous, I am putting on a robe,” says Elizabeth.
“Get on the bed, Gerry!” Evans yells.
“I’ll sit down if you put down the gun,” Taylor responds.
Taylor is then shot in the throat at close range.
“Help help!” Elizabeth cries.
Then, instead of begging or pleading this asshole for her life, she asks her husband: ”Are you out of your fucking mind?”
She is then shot at close range.
The recording wasn’t the only evidence prosecutors had. They also matched shell casing at the scene with Evans’ .40-caliber Glock. Evans tried to tell jurors that the voice on the recording was not his, but they didn’t buy it. It took them less than two hours to find him guilty of murder in the first degree.
Next up for Evans is his sentencing where he could receive the death penalty.Tags: Crime, Domestic Violence, Florida, Gerry Talyor, Murder, Patrick Evans, Shooting
