WEST PALM BEACH, Florida — A South Florida man has been sentenced to 100 years in prison for killing a man and wounding a woman during an attempted home invasion robbery.

A Palm Beach County judge sentenced 33-year-old Fares Mustafa on Monday. He was previously convicted of second-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder.

Authorities say Mustafa broke into a Jupiter home in June 2010 and fatally shot John Anderson. He then shot Anderson's girlfriend, Katie Coonrod, three times and left her for dead.

The Palm Beach Post (http://goo.gl/7O5CUI) reports that Mustafa was later arrested in South Carolina. He told police that a friend had set him up to rob Anderson, claiming the man had a stash of prescription drugs and up to $100,000 in the house.
