Homicide Suspect Pleads Guilty for the Murder of Sharmon Intili

CORONA, CA— On Nov. 3, 2017 Mark Brierley entered a guilty plea for the murder of Sharmon Intili.

On Nov. 23, 2016, at about 7 p.m., Corona Police and Corona Fire responded to a report of an unconscious female with injuries at a home in the 1000 block of E. Grand Blvd. The victim, 46-year-old Sharmon Intili, was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Over the next several months detectives served more than 20 search warrants related to this investigation and numerous items of evidence were collected and analyzed.

In June 2017, Mark Brierley, then a 42-year-old Riverside resident and the ex-boyfriend of Intili, was arrested for her homicide. In an interview with Corona Police detectives, Brierley confessed to Intili’s murder and told investigators where to locate outstanding evidence he had hidden, which was then recovered.

On Nov. 3, 2017, during a hearing in Riverside Superior Court in downtown Riverside, Brierley accepted a plea deal of life in prison with no possibility of parole. He also waived 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.”

The Corona Police Department appreciates the help and support that the family and community have provided throughout this case.
