2 Receive Life Sentences For 2009 Deadly Shootings

LOS ANGELES (CBS/KNX 1070) — Two men will spend the rest of their lives in prison without the possibility of parole for their roles in the deadly March 2009 shootings, which stemmed from a botched robbery.

Jose Prieto, 23, acted as a lookout while 21-year-old Jesse Robles was the getaway driver.

KNX 1070 Newsradio’s Brian Ping reports that Prieto’s 20-year-old brother Hector was the suspected gunman but the jury remains deadlocked over whether to give him a life sentence or the death penalty.

The gunman came to an apartment in the 1200 block of East Rosecrans Avenue on March 29, 2009, asking for a bag of marijuana, then shot Andrew Williams, Ronald Carter and Sinecia Miller in the head.

Prosecutors say the Prietos were desperately seeking money to bail their mother out of jail.

The mother of one of the victims wrote in a statement that she hopes the two men sentenced will suffer every day for the rest of their lives.

    It seems like this three did a public service. They go to jail and the drug dealers are all dead. Where is the down side?

      They deserve keys to the city and a parade for offing drug dealers.
