The brothers Gary and Chong Vue each were sentenced today to life terms without parole for the Oct. 15, 2008, shooting death of state correctional officer Steve Lo in the garage of his south Sacramento home.
Sacramento Superior Court Judge Steve White gave Gary Vue another 20 years for his personal use of a firearm in the killing of the 39-year-old victim.
The judge remanded both defendants to Minnesota to serve their sentences there first for their previous convictions in a 2001 gang murder in Minneapolis.
Gary Vue (left photo), 30, and Chong Vue (right photo), 32, were convicted last month of murdering Lo as part of a conspiracy orchestrated by their older brother, Chu Vue, 46, a fired former Sacramento sheriff's deputy. Jurors found that the killing was motivated by a sexual affair Lo was having with Chu Vue's wife.
