YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) - A 20-year-old Grandview man was sentenced Tuesday in Yakima to 19 years in prison for gunning down a man described as his nemesis.
The Yakima Herald-Republic reports ( http://bit.ly/13cFFqd) Alejandro Guadalupe Martinez pleaded guilty last month to second-degree murder for the December 2011 shooting of 18-year-old Mariano Cuevas in Grandview.
Police said the shooting was the culmination of a series of disputes. Martinez said Cuevas had insulted his pregnant girlfriend and made a gesture as if pulling a gun. He was unarmed.
