RIVERSIDE - A man who fatally shot his mother's boyfriend as he walked along an East Hemet street was sentenced on Friday, June 28 to 25 years to life in state prison.

Marquis Anthony Dorsey, 25, killed 36-year-old Terrell Raymond Jobe of Victorville in October 2016.

As soon as a jury was seated for his trial in April, Dorsey pleaded guilty to first-degree murder with sentence-enhancing gun and great bodily injury allegations.

Riverside County Superior Court Judge Charles Koosed certified the terms of the plea agreement and imposed the sentence stipulated by the prosecution and defense.

According to a trial brief filed by Deputy District Attorney Marcus Garrett, Dorsey had an unspecified grudge against Jobe, who had been dating the younger man's mother, identified in court papers only as M.J., for several months. M.J. and the victim were living together in her single-story house in the 41700 block of Marine Drive, just off of Stanford Street.

About 8 p.m. on Oct. 13, 2016, Dorsey was speaking to his mother as she sat in her Pontiac Grand Prix in front of the residence, when Jobe returned, walking on the sidewalk opposite the property, according to the brief.

As the victim crossed the street, Dorsey pulled a .40-caliber handgun from his backpack and opened fire, shooting Jobe five times, but not killing him, Garrett said.

He said that as the victim lay wounded on the pavement, Dorsey walked over "and completed the execution by shooting Jobe twice in the head.''

The man's daughter witnessed the attack unfold from inside the house, court papers stated.

Dorsey fled the area and went to his grandfather's residence, where he confessed perpetrating the murder and asked the elder's advice, Garrett said.

Several hours later, with sheriff's deputies searching for him, Dorsey walked into the Hemet Police Department on Latham Avenue and surrendered.

The defendant was booked into jail that night. He had no documented prior felony convictions.
