A man who was caught on camera killing another man during a 2017 robbery at an ATM in North Miami Beach will be spending the next 25 years in prison.
At a hearing Wednesday, 19-year-old Marcine Hill admitted his guilt in the Nov. 1, 2017 killing of 26-year-old Dillon Bud Calvin Steve as part of a plea deal. After serving the 25-year mandatory prison sentence Hill will be on probation for 10 years.
"I'd just like to say that 25 years is too good for a criminal of this caliber," the victim's brother, Austin Steve, told the court at the hearing.
Surveillance cameras captured the killing. Dillon Bud Calvin Steve was withdrawing cash from a Bank of America ATM near Northeast 163rd Street and 11th Avenue when the suspect, wearing a "Kill Batman" hoodie, approached from behind.
A struggle ensued, and Hill, who was 17 at the time, fatally shot Steve in the chest. Mother Sandy Steve was waiting for her son in their car when he was killed.
"He took my life when he took my son's," an emotional Sandy Steve said Wednesday. "He's a menace to society, he's the devil. He's a devil that destroyed our lives."
Hill initially rejected the plea deal and wanted to go to trial, but changed his mind. He was initially charged with first-degree murder but the charge was reduced to second-degree murder under the plea deal.
No one spoke in court on Hill's behalf, but he apologized to the victim's family. If he violates the terms of his probation then Hill will end up back in prison, this time for 40 years.
