Prison Time For Murder Victim’s Fiance

LINCOLN–(KFOR July 31)–Exactly a year after a 36-year-old Lincoln woman was murdered in her home, her 38-year-old fiance gets prison time for drug charges.

Michael Robertson was sentenced Wednesday to 16-21 years in prison. He was engaged to Jessica Brandon, who was shot and killed during a home invasion robbery on July 31, 2018 at a home off of 20th and Fairfield. Several pounds of marijuana and thousands of dollars in cash were found.

Court records say after the shooting, Robertson tried to hide some of the pot and money before police showed up.  It is believed the suspects in the shooting were there to steal the drugs.

Tawhyyne Patterson, Damon Williams, and Dante Williams all face charges of first-degree murder in connection to the shooting.

Ira Morrow is also facing charges of conspiracy to commit murder, while William Boothe III is being charged with accessory after the fact.
