Man sentenced to 15 years in prison for death of taxi driver
(Information from: Tulsa World, http://www.tulsaworld.com)
TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for the 2015 shooting death of a Tulsa taxi driver.
The Tulsa World reports that the sentence for 36-year-old Adan Mora-Ramos was handed down Thursday in Rogers County District Court as part of a plea deal.
Mora-Ramos was charged as an accessory to first-degree murder in the death of 38-year-old Rafael Hernandez-Torres. Hernandez-Torres’ body was found in the trunk of his partially submerged taxi in the Caney River in April 2015. He’d been shot nine times in the chest and back.
Mora-Ramos was apprehended by U.S. marshals after his fingerprint was discovered on beer cans near the scene.
Roman Medrano was also arrested for first-degree murder in connection to the shooting. The 41-year-old is scheduled for sentencing in July.
