LEESBURG, Fla. -

A Central Florida man was sentenced to the death penalty on Friday after being convicted of kidnapping and killing an 81-year-old woman.

Donald Williams was convicted in 2013 of kidnapping Janet Patrick, of Leesburg, from a Publix and killing her in 2010.

A Lake County judge took the recommendation from the jury back and sentenced Williams to death Friday morning.

Williams represented himself in the trial after he fired his public defender.
