PENN HILLS, Pa. - A man convicted of fatally shooting a mother and her son more than two years ago in Penn Hills was sentenced Wednesday.
Andre Lamar Olice Davis received the mandatory sentence of life without parole for the murder of Angela and Manning Proctor in March 2012.
The victims’ family was in court for the sentencing and said it only brings some comfort.
“I was here to support my mother and brother that were murdered by this person,” Jermain Jacobs said. “I feel safer knowing the person who took my family away is incarcerated. Yet, it does little consolation for my feelings and emotions to not having them here anymore.”
Jacobs relayed a message after court about gun violence.
“This violence isn’t the answer to anything. There are two families mourning here. Maybe one more than the other, but it’s still bad all around. I would like it to end,” Jacobs said.
Davis was also convicted of attempted homicide for shooting long-time friend Andre Frazier inside an apartment over an argument about money.
