Gang member gets life in prison for murder
BAKERSFIELD, Calif.(KBAK/KBFX) —
A man was sentenced Friday to life in prison without parole for a gang-related murder.
Jose Medrano, 23, was convicted for a shooting last year in Delano.
Authorities found 34-year-old Orlando Morales of McFarland dead in his car. They first believed his death was due to a traffic collision, but further investigation showed Morales had died due to a single gunshot wound before the crash, according to the Kern County District Attorney's Office.
The investigation led authorities to the arrest of Medrano.
