A judge sentenced a 17-year-old boy to 30 days in jail after he pleaded guilty to murder and other crimes.
Santiago Armijo of New Mexico will serve just one month in jail after killing a man. Armijo and a friend fatally shot the man in Albuquerque last year.
The teens were attempting to buy marijuana when Armijo shot Larry DeSantiago, 25, in the chest and killed him. Witnesses said they saw DeSantiago chase the pair to the top of a hill when Armijo fired off a shot and shouted, “That’s what you get!” They then ran away from the scene, but police caught them nearby.
District Court Judge Cristina Jaramillo sentenced Armijo to 30 days in jail and to supervised probation until he turns 21 on Thursday. Jaramillo chose the short jail sentence and treatment over holding Armijo in a juvenile detention center until he turns 21. read more
