Joshua Fisher, 31, was automatically sentenced to life in prison following the Criminal Court jury’s verdict on Saturday in the courtroom of Judge Lee Coffee.
Fisher was convicted of killing Bria Isaac, 28, who had been working two jobs, including one at a fast-food restaurant near her apartment on Monroe at Belvedere where she was found dead of gunshot wounds on Oct. 15, 2016.
Fisher was arrested seven weeks later in Stanton, Tenn.
Investigators said the couple had an on-again, off-again relationship dating back some 10 years, and often marked by domestic violence.
The case was handled by Asst. Dist. Attys. Marianne Bell and Jamie Kidd, both of the DA’s Domestic Violence Prosecution Unit which prosecutes felony cases of domestic assault and homicide committed by intimate partners.
The Unit also works closely with the Shelby County Family Safety Center to provide services and assistance to victims and their families.
