INDIANAPOLIS — An Indianapolis man has been found guilty of killing a pizza delivery driver during a 2018 robbery.
A jury convicted Jasean Dale on Tuesday on the charges of murder, felony murder, and robbery resulting in serious bodily injury.
In Aug. 2018, Lavon Drake reported to work on what would have been his day off to help with pizza deliveries. He went to a home on Kristen Circle and robbers forced him inside. He was then shot and killed.
IMPD officers responded when Drake’s manager notified police he had not returned from the delivery.
Police got an image from the getaway car that showed Dale in the backseat with an AR-style rifle and a pizza box. Also in the car were Jason Epeards and Juwann Terry.
Terry pleaded guilty to murder and robbery in Aug. 2019 and was sentenced to 60 years. Epeards is also charged; his case remains pending.
