Maryland Man Gets Life Plus 20 Years in Fatal Robbery Shooting

A Maryland man was sentenced to life in prison plus 20 years for killing a man during a robbery. 

A jury convicted Tavon Miles of Gaithersburg in the shooting death of 23-year-old Marc Taylor St. Aubin at his Olney home.

St. Aubin was found dead in his driveway March 3, 2015. 

Miles was among a group of armed burglars who broke into a home that St. Aubin shared in the 15800 block of Laughlin Lane, police said. Other people inside the home at the time told detectives several armed people entered and a struggle ensued, during which gunshots were fired. Both St. Aubin and Miles were injured. 

Some witnesses attempted to take St. Aubin to a car in the driveway to take him to the hospital while others began to remove items from the house, including guns, a safe and suspected marijuana.

Miles was dropped off at an area hospital in critical condition not long after police arrived at the house. 

A bullet recovered from his clothing during medical treatment matched bullets found inside St. Aubin's home, investigators said.
