A man who shot and killed a woman and her daughter in West Palm Beach has been sentenced to death.

Palm Beach County Circuit Judge, Cheryl Caracuzzo, has sentenced Marlin Joseph for the Dec 28, 2017, murders of Kaladaa Crowell, 36, and her 11-year-old daughter, Kyra Inglett.

In February, a jury of six men and six women found Joseph guilty and unanimously recommended capital punishment.

On Dec 28, 2017, police said that Joseph shot Kaladaa Crowell, 36, several times at a home their families shared on Third Street in West Palm Beach after a heated argument about her daughter’s attitude.

As she pleaded for help, he shot her again in the head.

Investigators also revealed that he chased her 11-year-old daughter, Kyra Inglett, out of the home as she fled and shot her five times, including three times in the head.

Joseph, 29, received the death penalty for both murders, and 15 years in prison for the possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, court records show.

After the sentence was imposed, the 29-year-old Jospeh looked back at his family in silence.

Once Caracuzzo left her bench, Crowell’s mother, Lajunia Crowell, wailed while grabbing onto her husband, Kenneth.
