Escambia Teen Gets Life In Prison For First Degree Murder

November 28, 2019

An Escambia County teen has been sentenced to life in prison for a 2017 murder

Circuit Judge Jeffrey Burns sentenced 19-year old Antjuan Sanders to life in state prison for the first degree murder of Susan Midyett. Because Sanders was 17 at the time of murder, he is entitled to a review of his sentence after 25 years.

On February 23, 2017, Susan Midyett was found deceased at her home on Statler Avenue.

Deputies first believed her death to be accidental, but further investigation determined that Midyett was strangled to death and her house was burglarized. Investigators said DNA evidence collected at the scene revealed Midyett had been sexually assaulted and led to the arrest of Sanders.
