Mark Garfield Moore, the man accused of killing two innocent young men in Weston, was sentenced to 12 years in prison yesterday for jewellery store robbery.
Moore and an accomplice, Kevin Williams, robbed a Leaside jewellery store of about $500,000 in 2010. They shot one of the employees in the violent heist.
Moore is accused of killing Courthney Facey and Mike James in Weston in September of 2010. They were but two of four people he is accused of killing, and they were unknown to Moore at the times of their deaths. He is accused of shooting them from his car, a BMW X5, for no reason at all, in an alleyway off Weston Road.
Courthney Facey, 18, was a student at Weston CI who loved to dance. Mike James was 23, deaf, and an apprentice chef. They were in a dance troupe and were getting dinner when they were murdered.
Moore was himself shot in Weston when he was 16 years old. The injury left his face disfigured. His brother, Andre Moore, was accused of shooting a police officer here (he was murdered before he could be tried). Moore was raised in Lawrence Heights and lived in Scarborough.
According to CTV, Moore will be tried early next year for the murders; his accomplice in the robbery, who will serve only two more years, is expected to testify against him. Moore assaulted Williams for being a ‘snitch’ when they were in prison.
