Life Means Life in Judge Costello's Courtroom

The Bay County man convicted of killing his cousin last spring will never get out of prison.

Circuit Judge Dedee Costello Wednesday sentenced 18-year-old Daryl Black to two consecutive life terms for the murder and robbery of Woodrow Cherry.

Cherry was found shot to death April 16th in a car, near the intersection of Highway 22 and Bertha Avenue in Callaway. He had been shot in the head several times.

On the first degree murder conviction, Costello gave Black life in prison with no possibility of parole. Then, using Florida's 10/20/life provision for crimes in which a firearm is used, she gave Black another life term. It is to be served consecutively to the first. The effect is that Black will never get out of prison.

Eric Baker, who drove Black away from the crime scene, is facing an eight-year term.
