CORONA – A 42-year-old Riverside man accepted a plea deal last week, sending him to prison for life without the possibility of parole for the murder of his ex-girlfriend.
On November 23, 2016, at around 7:00 p.m. Corona Police and Fire Department responded to a home in the 1000 block of E. Grand Boulevard for the report of an unconscious female with injuries. When they arrived they located Sharmon Intili, 46, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
Detectives followed leads and continued to investigate the murder, serving over 20 search warrants related to the investigation. Numerous items of evidence were collected and analyzed leading to the June 2017, arrest of Mark Brierley, 42, of Riverside. During the interview with police detectives, Brierley confessed to Intili’s murder. Brierley also told investigators where to locate evidence that he had hid. Using the evidence provided, police recovered the evidence.
During a hearing at the Riverside Superior Court on Friday, Brierley accepted the plea deal accepting life without the possibility of parole, also waiving all appeals.
“This investigation has been our highest priority,” said lead investigator, Sergeant Brad Voorhees. “As this case comes to a close, we hope that this outcome can provide the Intili family a measure of justice for Sharmon.”
