BOCA RATON, FL ( — Lavont Lee Davis faces multiple sentences of life in prison after a Palm Beach County Jury today convicted him of first degree murder, burglary with an assault with a firearm, and attempted robbery with a firearm following the grusome murder of a Boca Raton woman.

The jury agreed with prosecutors who said Davis, now 22, entered the home of Dawn Ruvolo with the intent to rob her and a guest at gunpoint. Davis’ gun discharged during the robbery, striking and killing Ms. Ruvolo. Davis then fled the residence.

Dawn Ruvolo lived in the Watergate Mobile Home Park at 10564 228th Lane South. Her official cause of death was “single gunshot wound to the head.”

Davis will be sentenced on January 17, 2012.
