Portales shooting sentence

Posted: Updated:

Portales, New Mexico - An area man is sentenced for being an accessory to the murder of a Portales man.

Jorge Alonso Quinonez-Hernandez has been sentenced to 11 years in prison for his part in the April 2011 shooting death of Jose Alfredo Montoya.

Quinonez drove two armed men to Montoya's home with plans to steal his truck.

Authorities say one of those men, Erik Pina, shot Montoya in the head while stealing the vehicle.

Pina still faces murder charges in a trial scheduled to start in February.
