Teen convicted of killing man on Fourth of July
PASCO, Wash. (AP) — An 18-year-old was convicted of killing a Pasco man who had been on a grocery run before joining Fourth of July festivities.
The Tri-City Herald reports Pedro Cadenas was found guilty Monday of first-degree murder, second-degree unlawful gun possession and attempted vehicle theft in the July 4, 2017, death of Jorge Rodriguez.
The murder charge includes the special allegation that Cadenas was armed with a gun when he killed Rodriguez.
Cadenas, who already has a felony record, is facing 28 years and five months to just more than 36 years in prison. Five years of that will be mandatory and served before he does the rest of the time.
Defense attorneys Shelley Ajax and Daniel Stovern told the Herald they did not want to discuss the verdicts.
