Rapper convicted of murder in Spokane shootingApril 26, 2013 @ 5:20 am
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - A rapper who goes by the name "Lil Danger" faces life in prison without parole after his conviction in a shooting that killed another rapper at an after-concert party at a Spokane hotel.
John Castro was convicted Thursday of second-degree murder in the November 2011 shooting of 21-year-old Jose A. "Junior" Solis, a rapper from Moses Lake.
The 28-year-old Castro has two previous convictions for violent crimes and faces a mandatory life sentence as a three strikes offender.
The Spokesman-Review reports ( http://bit.ly/181iyUE) about a dozen sheriff's deputies lined the courtroom, separating friends and families of Castro and Solis, when the jury returned with the verdict.
