Descripción del sitio

Darvin Lopez Jovel, 18. The Aloha man was kidnapped, assaulted and killed in a revenge killing for his father's affair. Police say Petronilo Lopez Lopez and his son, Petronilo Lopez Minjarez, went to Lopez Jovel's home in November 2004 seeking vengeance on the family after discovering that the victim's father was having an affair with Lopez Lopez's wife. Lopez Lopez was believed to have fled to Mexico, where he cannot be extradited for a death penalty case. Lopez Minjarez was arrested. His defense attorneys argued that Lopez Minjarez's father led the violence against the teen and acted as the sole killer, leaving his son to hide in a McDonald's bathroom while he fatally shot the teen in the woods. The victim's blood found in the Lopez Minjarez's truck, home and on his clothes, and eyewitness testimony helped tie him to the murder, and the state argued that he was not left at a McDonald's but was present for the teen's fatal shooting. Lopez Minjarez was convicted of aggravated murder and sentenced to life in prison. In January 2010, the Oregon Court of Appeals reversed the conviction, saying the jury received instructions that inaccurately stated the law on accomplice liability. The Attorney General's office has asked the court to reconsider its decision. If the court affirms its reversal, the case will then go to the Supreme Court for review.
