Judge Julie Rubin sentenced to life in prison with all suspended but 50 years Tuesday for the death of Edward Yesaitis.

Police responded to the Deluxe Plaza Motel on Pulaski Highway on January 5, 2016. At the scene, the responding officers located Yesaitis body wrapped in a blanket between two beds. A preliminary investigation revealed Yesaitis arrived at the motel, accompanied by Angel Fury and Christopher Wilkins, whom he met at Penn Station.

Angel Fury Baltimore Guilty Of MurderAn autopsy determined Yesaitis had suffered extensive trauma, including lacerations, fractures and contusions to his torso, extremities and head.

Fury and Wilkins had plans to return to Penn Station and travel to North Carolina. Before leaving the motel room, they stole Yesaitis’ cellphone, clothing and wallet.

After pleading guilty to first-degree murder on January 31, Wilkins was sentenced to life in prison, with all but 30 years suspended.

“My hope is that our city is that much safer now that the perpetuators of such a horrible and calculated crime will spend most of their lives incarcerated,” said State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby in a statement. “Mr. Yesaitis experienced a horrendous death; and while it will not bring him back, this sentence is the final act to hold his assailants fully accountable.”
