Watch as Judge Vaughn sentences Eriese Tisdale to death for first degree murder for killing St. Lucie Co. Deputy Sergeant Gary Morales during a traffic stop south of Fort Pierce in February 2013.
Go Heros reported that the man who killed Sergeant Gary Morales has been sentenced to die. Eriese Tisdale was convicted of shooting and killing the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s deputy during a traffic stop in February 2013.
Citing the aggravating factors, the judge sentenced the convicted killer to the maximum state penalty. The sentencing was delayed in January after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Florida’s death penalty sentencing procedures were unconstitutional.
