The two men were convicted and are serving life sentences for two separate murders stemming back to 2003 and 2008. Both men are being represented by attorney, Hector Guerra. In his plea for mitigation, before Justice Marilyn Williams, Guerra asked the court to consider imposing a fix sentence of 20-30 years upon his clients respectively for the murders they were found guilty of and were initially sentenced to life imprisonment for. Justice Marilyn Williams has reserved her decision on the matters until April 23 when a fixed sentence will be imposed.
