Tucson man gets life in drug-related killing- Murder Attorney in Mesa Arizona
Article from AZ central
“A Tucson man has been sentenced to life in prison after being convicted of first-degree murder for the second time.
Pima County prosecutors say 21-year-old Mario Ramon-Antonio Acedo was sentenced Wednesday. He will be eligible for parole after serving 25 years.
Acedo was charged in the shooting death of Christopher Montano during a drug-related robbery in August 2010.
A judge granted Acedo a second trial after learning a few jurors walking to a downtown restaurant were flashed some sort of hand signals by a group driving by in an attempt to intimidate them.
The Arizona Daily Star says attorneys learned a juror wrote a letter instructing people to contact the judge if something happened to her.
Acedo was convicted again in February.”
