One of the two men charged with beating another man to death in April 2011 was sentence to prison last month after pleading guilty to second-degree murder.
Richard Vigil Sr., 48, of the 600 block of East Jackson, has been sentenced to nine years in prison. District Judge Matthew Sandoval imposed the sentence during a hearing on July 17. The court order documenting the sentence was filed in district court last week.
Vigil will get credit for the time he has already spent behind bars. After he finishes serving his time, he will be on parole for two years.
