Man sentenced for 1987 double killing in California

SAN DIEGO (AP) — A Southern California man who fled to Mexico after killing two people in 1987 following an argument over beer at a child’s birthday party has been sentenced to 34 years to life in prison. A judge in San Diego sentenced 62-year-old Jose Solorio on Friday for the killings at an apartment in Ramona. Prosecutors say Solorio got into an argument over getting more beer during a birthday party for the 4-year-old daughter of one victim. Authorities say he felt insulted, returned with a gun and opened fire. He fled to Mexico for 32 years before being captured and extradited in 2019.
