A West Boynton teen who killed two men — shooting them each in the head and then going shopping at malls — was sentenced Friday to 60 years in prison.
Anthony Clark, now 17, pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of two cousins, Ricky Miner, 23, of Boynton Beach, and Andrew Laudano 21, of West Boynton.
Clark was just 14 years old when he shot and killed them during a robbery committed with two accomplices.
“It was so horrific, I can’t even look at the crime-scene photos,” said Mary Lynn Hougen, holding a framed photograph of her son, Miner. “How could anyone do this to two human beings? How does this happen to a mom?”
Circuit Judge Laura Johnson agreed, “It’s senseless.”
Clark stood beside his attorney, Kai Li Aloe Fouts, while pleading guilty and didn’t make any statement in court. Clark must serve at least 25 years of the sentence, Johnson said.
Co-defendant Reed Albertson, 19, also is expected to resolve his charges with a guilty plea on Wednesday. The third assailant has not been arrested yet, prosecutor Andrew Slater told the court.
The victims were both found on April 7, 2015, with bullet wounds to the head in and near a car parked in the Melrose Park neighborhood off Lyons Road, west of Boynton Beach.
Hougen, who has four other children, said she at first wanted to die after the killing of her “kind, funny, charming … precious little boy.”
But she said she managed to go on, and during Friday’s hearing read her son’s Mother’s Day letter to her that he wrote while in the first grade.
Christian Laudano, younger brother of Andrew Laudano, couldn’t hold back his anger when given a chance to address the court.
“He had a kid, bro,” Laudano said. “He had something to live for. When you get out bro, karma is a mother. Just remember that.”
Sarah Bowers, mother of Andrew Laudano’s now 4-year-old son, lamented the absence of the man in her child’s life.
“Our son will never get to spend any more birthdays or holidays with his dad,” she said.
Prosecutor Slater said Clark gave a “full and complete” confession to the killings, as part of a negotiated plea deal with his attorney.
Clark was arrested eight days after the shootings at Palm Beach International Airport, as he tried to board a flight to St. Louis, according to an arrest report.
Deputies said they found witnesses who claimed Clark admitted wanting to rob Laudano. Investigators said they also learned Clark had a laser-equipped gun that he had allegedly stolen in a vehicle burglary, and there was evidence Clark had gone on a shopping spree at malls in Boynton and Wellington on the day of the killings
Clark told a detective he had dropped out of school and didn’t know how he was going to make money, according to the report. Clark also mentioned during the interview how he saw Laudano with a lot of cash and a gun. The prosecutor said Clark bought marijuana from Laudano in the past.
Investigators said Laudano’s Dodge Charger appeared to be rummaged through, and Laudano was missing a Michael Kors rose-gold colored watch and his iPhone 6, according to the report.
Detectives said Clark had the same watch when he was arrested.
Kelly Neal, Miner’s older sister, told the court she wanted Clark to receive a death sentence, which she recognized wasn’t possible under the law because of his age.
“Take no pity on this man,” she said. “He knew what he was doing.”
