Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Alan Marrus sentenced 31-year-old Woody Borgella to 15-years to life in prison last week for shooting Lora Ann Evans to death following an argument in their Midwood apartment on September 19, 2011.

While attempting to fight off the knife-wielding Marrus during a scuffle that would later take her life, another roommate heard the fight and rushed in to the rescue, according to the report.

It was then that Borgella pulled out a gun and shot Evans in the chest. After fleeing the scene, the Brooklyn man led police on a two-day manhunt before later turning himself in at the 70th Precinct, according to police.

A jury convicted Borgella of second-degree murder, a class A felony, and criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree, a class C felony, on March 12, 2014.

“This defendant killed a woman in cold blood and casually walked away without looking back,” said Kings County District Attorney Kenneth Thompson. “Now that he will be spending the next 15- years or more behind bars, walking away from what he did will not be an option.”
