MIAMI, Fla. (CW44 News At 10) – The two 35-year-old South Florida men who killed a Miami plumber in an armed robbery and carjacking in 2018 have been convicted by a Miami Federal District Court. US District Judge Roy K. Altman sentenced Jamal Lamar Head to 60 years in prison and Keon Travy Glanton to just over 33 years in prison.
On July 11, 2018, Head and Glanton worked together to steal valuable plumbing equipment from a Roto-Rooter plumber in Riviera Beach, Florida. Head and Glanton lured the plumber Roto-Rooter to an abandoned residence in Riviera Beach, where Head assaulted him with a gun. Valuable plumbing equipment was removed from the vehicle.

The next day, July 12, 2018, Head and Glanton planned to rob another plumber, this time at a vacant house in Miami Lakes, Florida. After Head and Glanton called several plumbers, the “LSH” plumber agreed to come to the Miami Lakes house to do some plumbing work. When LSH arrived, Head forced LSH into another vehicle at gunpoint, while Glanton left in LSH’s plumbing van.
Head began to kick LSH off the stage, and LSH struggled with Head. Head then shot LSH once in the chest and twice in the abdomen and crashed his car into a tree. Head fled the scene and called Glanton, who returned to the area in LSH’s van to retrieve Head. Head and Glanton then fled the area together. They then drove to another area of Miami, where they sprayed the van with LSH gasoline and set it on fire.

Paramedics arrived at the scene of the murder and found LSH’s body in the back seat of Head’s vehicle. LSH was pronounced dead at the scene. The medical examiner determined that LSH’s cause of death was blood loss from all three gunshot wounds.
Earlier this year, Glanton and Head pleaded guilty to conspiring to commit Hobbs Law robbery, carjacking resulting in death, and using a firearm to commit a violent crime. .
