Two men sentenced to life in prison for death of Lincoln mother

LINCOLN, Neb. -- Two men will spend the rest of their lives in prison for the shooting death of a Lincoln mother.

A federal judge sentenced Tawhyne Patterson and Damon Williams to life in prison for the attempted robbery and home invasion which resulted in Jessica Brandon's death in 2018.

According to court documents, several other people have been sentenced in connection with the shooting.

Police say they found several people on the main floor of the house bound with zip ties and duct tape.

Police also found several pounds of marijuana and $85,000 in cash in the home.

The court records say the drugs and money were the likely motive for the break-in.
