A Jim Wells County jury deliberated for less than two hours Monday before returning a guilty verdict in the capital murder trial of Alonzo "Lowrider" Gonzalez.
Gonzalez was charged with capital murder in the Jan. 2006 shooting death of Javier "Jammer" Sanchez.
In a hearing held shortly after the verdict was read, District Judge Richard Terrell sentenced Gonzalez to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Gonzalez is the second suspect who has been convicted of capital murder in the case.
In June, a jury also returned a guilty verdict in the trial of Alejandro Carbajal Garza Jr.
A third suspect, Alfredo "Casper" Gonzalez, has also been indicted for capital murder in the case and is awaiting trial.
