The man that pulled the trigger on the gun that kill 19-year-old Cody Snyder in January has been sentenced to 24 years in prison, while several other people involved in the drug deal gone bad that led to the killing are awaiting sentencing.
In January, Snyder, Jeffrey Miraldi, 21, of Elyria and Jenna Turner, 20, of Middleburg Heights, drove a 2014 Ford Focus to Clinton Avenue in Elyria to sell a half pound of marijuana to Qwanda Woodson, 17, of Elyria, and Justin Smith, 18, of Oberlin, for $1,400, police said.
Woodson and Smith enlisted the help of Anderson to rob Snyder, Miraldi and Turner, police said. A confrontation ensued, and Anderson shot Snyder in the chest, police said.
Due to Miraldi being the son of Lorain County Judge John Miraldi, a visiting judge was brought in to preside over the case along with a special prosecutor.
