Two Sentenced to 10 years in Killing of MMA Fighter Aaron Rajman


Mixed martial arts fighter Aaron Rajman’s presence in the ring was unmistakable in South Florida. As an Orthodox Jew who wore a yarmulke during his fights, he was nicknamed “The Matzoh Brawler.”

But Rajman, 25, met a violent end in 2017 but not in a MMA cage. He was shot to death in his bedroom in West Boca. It was a drug robbery gone wrong, court records show.

Two people took responsibility Monday for the killing and received 10-year prison sentences. The prosecution continues against a third person alleged as the shooter in the case.

Summer Church, 18, of West Boca, and Jace Swinton, 20, of Margate, each pleaded guilty to reduced charges of second-degree murder.
