A Gainesville woman was found guilty of murder Tuesday for her role in the March 15 death of a taxi driver.
Margarita “Maggie” Leanos, 28, was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of Isaias Tovar-Murillo, 46, of Gainesville.
Misty Sunshine Moran, 39, was found guilty last week of shooting Tovar-Murillo. Leanos was accused of being the getaway driver.
Investigators said they believe Moran got in a taxi with Tovar-Murillo, while Leanos followed behind with Ignacio Mondragon, 21, Nicholas Allen Gonzalez, 24, and Justin John Adams, 22. Mondragon, Gonzalez and Adams took a plea deal in August that allowed them to avoid prosecution for felony murder.
Tovar-Murillo was found March 15 with a gunshot wound to the back of his head in the wooded area around Barrett and Dorsey Peek roads.
