Posted on 4/21/2016
Defendant: Jonathan Laquan Rose
Prosecutor Ron O’Brien announced that Jonathan Laquan Rose, age 21, was sentenced today following a jury trial this week, after being found guilty of attempted murder and weapon under disability with gun specifications, in connection to the April 6, 2015 shooting of Mikallya Wood, age 21 at the time. The shooting of Mikallya Wood happened following an argument over paper plates. The defendant refused to go to the local convenience store to buy paper plates while Mikallya Wood and others were cooking dinner. The victim argued with Rose, and he shot her in the chest. Rose was immediately sentenced today to 23 years in prison. “The defendant was on parole for a prior robbery conviction at the time of this shooting,” O’Brien stated.
