Convicted killer gets 20 years

Ricky Quintana, who was found guilty of second-degree murder in the April 2003 death of Michael Grube, has been committed to 20 years at the New Mexico Behavioral Health Institute.

Quintana, 49, received a sentence that is considered the basic one for a second-degree murder conviction with an enhancement of five additional years, said Richard Flores, Fourth Judicial District Attorney. Prosecutors requested the enhancement due to the brutal nature of the killing, and Judge Gerald Baca concurred.
