In an emotional hearing Monday afternoon, the Las Vegas man accused of killing a 6-year-old girl was sentenced to the maximum of 15 years in prison.
David Levi Chavez, 22, was convicted by a jury in Santa Rosa last year of second-degree murder in the 2008 death of Jasmine Garcia, who had graduated from kindergarten weeks before her killing.
Chavez must serve 85 percent of his sentence, District Attorney Richard Flores said. The state Department of Corrections has the authority to knock off 15 percent of the prison sentence for good behavior.
