    Galante R. Phillips - Florida Death Row


    Christopher Aligada





    Summary of Offense:

    A Duval County jury took less than two hours to convict a man accused of gunning down a Westside lumber store employee who was trying to stop the armed robbery of a co-worker. Galante Phillips was convicted of first-degree murder and armed robbery in the 2005 shooting death of Christopher Aligada. The shooting happened outside Builders First Source on Roosevelt Boulevard, where Aligada worked. Police said the robber was holding up another employee at gunpoint, but when Aligada approached the scene, the bandit opened fire, killing him. Almost a year after the fatal shooting, police said a tip led them to arrest Phillips.

    Phillips' trial began with the testimony of the man police said was being robbed when Aligada stepped in to help. Wilbert Sweet told the jury it was Phillips who shot and killed his friend and co-worker outside Builders First Source. "Mr. Galante Phillips was right there with a gun," said Sweet. "He pointed it at me and demanded my money."

    Phillips was sentenced to death in Duval County on September 20, 2008.

    Good Samaritan’s killer gets death sentence for Jacksonville slaying

    A Jacksonville judge sentenced Galante Romar Phillips, 29, to death this morning for murdering a lumberyard supervisor who came to the aid of a robbery victim outside Builders First Source on Roosevelt Boulevard.

    Phillips Circuit Judge Mallory Cooper said Phillips showed no remorse for the 2005 murder and even made comments that shooting victim Christopher Aligada shouldn’t have tried to be a hero. Aligada, 40, of Orange Park was fatally shot after he tried to stop Phillips from robbing another Builders Source employee in the parking lot.

    Aligada's mother flew to Jacksonville from California to watch the sentencing but said it didn't offer her closure.

    "The pain I felt upon hearing about what happened to Christopher hasn’t changed," Erlinda Aligada said through tears.

    Under Florida law, Phillips' sentence is automatically appealed to the Florida Supreme Court.

    Case Information:

    On 10/06/08, Phillips filed a Direct Appeal to the Florida Supreme Court. The following issues were raised: the trial court erred in finding and instructing the jury on the avoid-arrest aggravator, the trial court erred in instructing the jury during the penalty phase, the death sentence is not proportionate, the trial court erred in not striking the jury panel or granting a new trial after some jurors observed Phillips wearing shackles, handcuffs, and a jail uniform, and whether the evidence was sufficient to sustain Phillip’s conviction. On 05/13/19 the Florida Supreme Court affirmed the convictions and sentence of the lower court. A motion for rehearing was submitted on 05/24/10. This motion was denied on 07/09/10. On 07/26/10, the Florida Supreme Court issued a mandate. On 08/25/10, Phillips filed a Petition for Writ of Certiorari with the United States Supreme Court. This petition was denied on 11/01/10.

    Today the Florida Supreme Court ruled that Phillips' points of appeal regarding his attorney's performance during his sentence phase as moot since he is getting a new one.

    The court ordered in the past two years that he is entitled to a new penalty phase because of Hurst.
