Reyes Carrillo-Garcia, convicted of stabbing to death Jenny Carrigan of Chester and Steven Furtado of Willows in May 2008, will be in court for sentencing Monday, Nov. 23, at 1:30 p.m.
Carrillo-Garcia was found guilty of two counts of murder, an enhancement for the use of a knife and two special circumstances for “lying in wait” and “multiple murder” when his trial ended in October.
His expected sentence is life in prison without the possibility of parole.
The death penalty was ruled out before his trial began after the Furtado family voiced its preference that Carrillo-Garcia should spend the rest of his life in prison.
