The man who shot and then decapitated a Port Arthur man in Brazoria County almost two years ago will spend the rest of his life in prison.

Zachary Foyt was sentenced by a Brazoria County jury to life in prison and fined $10,000 in the grisly death of Jubal Alexander.

Alexander's decapitated body was found in May 2016 in his pickup truck in Brazoria County.

His head was never recovered.

Prosecutors say that Foyt did not know Alexander before he fatally shot him and then decapitated him.

They say that Foyt wanted to kill someone for the power of it and that he took Alexander's head to conceal evidence.

The father of the victim, Jubal Alexander Sr., released a statement to 12News stating:

"His mother and I are grateful for the sheriffs department for protecting the community, and bringing justice for our son. Thank you to the D.A. for helping us. Those people are our heroes."
