PORTALES — A 13-year-old boy was found guilty of murder in the death of a 21-year-old Eastern New Mexico University student.
The Roosevelt County jury returned guilty verdicts late Friday against the boy in the July 2010 death of Angel Vale.
The boy was convicted on charges that included second-degree murder, aggravated burglary, tampering with evidence and larceny.
He faces a maximum sentence of commitment in a Children, Youth and Families Department group facility until age 21.
