A second man has been convicted in connection with the shooting death of former Redskins safety Sean Taylor. Jason Mitchell, the man believed to be the ringleader of a botched home invasion at Taylor's residence in November 2007, was convicted of first-degree felony murder and armed burglary on Tuesday, according to the Associated Press. Mitchell was sentenced to life in prison following the conviction, according to the Miami Herald. Mitchell's sentence comes seven months after accomplice Eric Rivera was convicted of second-degree murder. Rivera, 23, was sentenced to 57 years in prison for the part he played in Taylor's death. Mitchell is believed to have masterminded the plan to rob Taylor's home. The belief was that Taylor, a Washington safety, would be out of town at a Redskins game during the Nov. 26, 2007 home invasion, but Taylor was actually at home due to an injury.
