PHOENIXVILLE, PA — Brian Corsey Jr. and John G. Ortiz-Carr were found guilty of Second Degree Murder, Robbery, and related charges after a 6-day jury trial. The case stemmed from a shooting in December 2017 near the Phoenixville Dunkin Donuts store.
Authorities state the defendants used Snapchat to arrange a marijuana sale to the victim, Jason Ortiz-Cameron, and a companion for $400. Their actual intent was to rob the victim of the drugs and money but ended up killing him.
Chester County District Attorney Deb Ryan stated, “This case shows the tragic consequences of mixing drugs and firearms, which resulted in the death of Jason. Now, these two defendants will spend the rest of their lives in prison as a result of that dangerous mix.”
Both defendants are to be sentenced to life in prison at a later date. A third defendant, Robert McCoy, earlier pled guilty to Third Degree Murder and Robbery and is awaiting sentencing.
Detective Nicholas Natale and Sergeant Patrick Mark of the Phoenixville Police Department and Sergeant Joseph Walton of the Chester County Detectives were the lead investigators. Deputy District Attorney Carlos Barraza and Assistant District Attorney John McCaul were the prosecutors.
