BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2023 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — It’s officially life in prison for Jorge Dupre Lachazo, the 24 year old delivery driver for Best Buy who bludgeoned and burned a a 75-year-old Boca Raton woman during a dryer delivery in 2019. Evelyn Udell lived in the Colonnade at Glen Oaks in Boca.

Wednesday’s sentencing was just a formality. Lachazo was convicted back in January and his sentence was a given, due to Florida statutes. Circuit Judge Dallas Weiss made the sentence official on Wednesday.

As we previously reported, “Jorge Lachazo was working with another man when they delivered the washer and dryer to Evelyn Udell on August 20th, 2019. The man went outside and later told police he heard screams and smelled smoke. Police learned quickly that Lachazo had smashed Udell with a mallet, and then set her body on fire with paint thinner.”

Lachazo was convicted of first degree murder, burglary with assault or battery while armed, and first degree arson. He lived in Hialeah before his arrest.
