Richard Lalo Ramirez was sentenced today to 40 years-to-life in prison for the May 24, 2009, shooting death of Christopher Richard Montejano,.
Ramirez, 32, received the term from Sacramento Superior Court Judge Gary S. Mullen. Ramirez was convicted of second-degree murder July 19 in the killing of the 20-year-old victim on 18th Avenue in Oak Park.
Ramirez, intoxicated on tequila, shot Montejano six times. Authorities said the two were involved over a dispute over Montejano's belief that Ramirez had disrespected the victim's estranged girlfriend.
