A Palm Coast man has been sentenced to life in prison for the 2021 second degree murder of his 22-year-old girlfriend.
Brenan Hill, 34, was sentenced on Feb. 6. Hill was convicted of the second degree murder of Savannah La-Rynn Gonzalez in September.
Hill was also convicted on charges of aggravated battery and firing a gun inside an occupied vehicle, and was sentenced to 25 and 15 years for each respective charge, a Flagler County Sheriff's Office press release said. The sentences will be served concurrently.
Gonzalez was shot by Hill in March 2021 and later died of her injuries in November 2022.
Sheriff Rick Staly said Hill receiving the maximum penalty is justice.
“Every decision Brenan Hill made the day he killed Savannah Gonzalez was to save his own skin,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “ While no amount of justice can replace the loved one they lost, we hope Savannah’s family can take some comfort knowing that he will be locked-up for life behind bars."
