A person was once convicted of 2 counts of second-degree homicide Friday for gunning down two males at a 4-year-old lady’s party in Ramona 35 years in the past, then fleeing to Mexico.
Jose Angel Solorio, 62, was once discovered to blame of the June 7, 1987, killings of German Aviles, 26, and Ventura Aviles, 21. The lads died on the scene of the taking pictures, which happened at an condo on B Side road, the place a party was once held for the birthday of German Aviles’ 4-year-old daughter.
Deputy District Lawyer Chris Lindberg alleged Solorio, then 27 years previous, were given into an issue with the sufferers and different males over getting extra beer for the birthday party.
The prosecutor alleged Solorio was once angered over an obvious insult directed at him, left the birthday party and returned a little while later with a loaded gun.
Whilst status within the doorway of the condo, Solorio fatally shot German and Ventura Aviles, then shot and wounded any other guy within the condo. He then shot any other guy out of doors the condo who was once returning to the house with beer. Regardless that not one of the males have been armed with a firearm, Ventura Aviles had a knife tucked in his waistband, despite the fact that Lindberg mentioned there was once no proof that he ever produced the knife or threatened to make use of it.
Solorio was once first of all charged with homicide and tried homicide for allegedly taking pictures all 4 males, however best confronted two homicide counts at trial in reference to the deceased sufferers.
Protection lawyer Shannon Kitten argued Solorio was once attacked through the lads and fired in self-defense.
She mentioned that all over the birthday party, any individual made threats against Solorio and his circle of relatives. When he returned to the birthday party to confront the lads about what was once mentioned, Kitten mentioned the lads complicated on him and Solorio mentioned, “Don’t come at me,” ahead of opening fireplace.
Lindberg alleged that self-defense didn’t come into play for the reason that defendant provoked the taking pictures.
“The defendant wasn’t at risk when he got here again with a gun. The defendant was once the risk,” Lindberg advised the jury.
Solorio was once positioned in Mexico in March of 2019 and extradited to the US later that 12 months.
He’s slated to be sentenced on June 24.
