Jamin Coyle: Teen gets life sentence for fatal robbery:
Daily Commercial, The (Leesburg, FL) - Saturday, November 3, 2012
MILLARD K. IVES | Staff Writer
A teen who was convicted of robbing and murdering a pilot in Lake County he met online could be one of the first juveniles sentenced to life. The U.S. Supreme Court recently ruled that minors may be sentenced to mandatory life without parole.
Ryan Ray, 18, was found guilty in the murder and robbery of Jamin Coyle early this summer and sentenced to life in prison Friday.
The judge also gave him 10 years for the robbery conviction.
Ray's age at the time of the 2010 murder was 16, which made him ineligible for the death penalty. But in Florida, a first-degree murder conviction carries a minimum life sentence.
Bill Gross, who prosecuted the Ray case, had said before Friday's sentencing that some juveniles who had been given life for first-degree murder in Lake County had recently expressed intentions to challenge their sentence. They viewed an earlier High Court ruling that found that life sentences should not be automatically given and that a judge had to consider the age, maturity and circumstances.
Gross had said Ray could try to use the new ruling to get a lesser sentence.
After weighing the evidence at looking at the defendant's background, Circuit Judge Lawrence J. Semento said Ray's actions were not those of a child but of a man when sentencing him to life Friday.
"If they are old enough to commit such heinous crimes they should be old enough to serve the time," said Leesburg police Capt. Rob Hicks, whose department investigated the case..
Coyle was a Delta Airlines pilot and dispatcher from Lancaster, Ky., when he was found Sept. 1, 2010 on the side of a Leesburg road in his underwear, choked to death and his wallet missing.
Leesburg police found Coyle's unoccupied Chevrolet Tahoe within a mile, with blood in the interior in a vacant lot at 603 Newell Hill Road in Leesburg, and his wallet in a trash bin at the nearby Newell Hill Villas apartment complex.
An autopsy revealed Coyle had been strangled. Ray's DNA was found under Coyle's fingernails.
According to testimony, Coyle met Ray online. And while Coyle was visiting his parents in Summerfield, the pair hung out on Aug. 31.
On the stand, Ray admitted to hanging out with Coyle the day before he was found, including going to the movies at the Rialto Theatre in The Villages. Ray testified the two had consented to a back rub in the man's van. Ray added at some point Coyle started making advances-- and he got scared and choked Coyle, but when he left the van Coyle was still alive.
He added he later went back to the van, to confront Coyle and another friend of his actually choked Coyle to death. Ray denied robbing the victim.
Gross argued against Ray's claims.
According to testimony during the murder trial, a witness whom Ray frequently hung out with, the defendant uncharacteristically paid for vodka, cigars and snacks during one of their regular get togethers on the night before the victim was found dead.
Police also testified that Ray had asked a friend to throw the wallet away.
Gross said they couldn't find any evidence that the friend was the actual murderer.

coyles body wednesday. he is from lancaster..and was staying at his
familys florida home near leesburg when he was robbed and killed. now
his parents and brother wait hundreds of miles away in garrard
county... for word his killer has been caught. janet kim reports from
the satellite center in tonight s top story. sam, weve been tracking
this investigation from florida since we heard the victim, 39year old
jamin coyle.. had kentucky ties. today, we sat down with his family,
who live in garrard county, in an emotional interview about who jamin
coyle was and the details surrounding his murder. it wasnt a call
the coyle family wanted to receive from police in florida. it was
horrible. their sons white chevy tahoe had been found abandoned in a
vacant leesburg lot... doors open and the engine running.. but no
signs of their son, jamin.
all i could think about was what if they could find him alive. find
him ok. eight hours later. a woman walking by discovered the body of
39year old jamin coyle. in a wooded area close to where his suv was
initially spotted. its a nightmare. hes my baby. dont seem real.
leesburg police are calling this a homicide investigation... the
motive...robbery... possibly starting as a carjacking. the
circumstances surrounding his death still unknown... theyre not
giving us a lot of information right now. we're just getting bits and
pieces... it just dont make sense, its senseless. frustrating for a
family hundreds of miles away from where the crime happened.
i thought about what he went through. daddys are supposed to protect
their children, but i couldnt be there. jamin coyles parents tell me
their son had lived with them in garrard county until recently.. when
he moved to atlanta for his job with delta. they say he was a
wonderful son, brother and uncle who will be dearly missed. live in
the satellite center, janet kim, wkyt 27 newsfirst. spurlin funeral
home in garrard county will be handling coyles arrangements... his
body is expected back as early as tonight.
