SOMERSET, Ky. (AP) - A one-year prison term has been handed to a Somerset resident for his role in a murder on Easter Sunday last year.
Jose Munoz was sentenced yesterday in Pulaski Circuit Court. Munoz had pleaded guilty to an amended charge of tampering with physical evidence regarding his role in the shooting death of Carlos Garicia. The victim was gunned down April 16th last year at a trailer park.
Commonwealth's attorney Eddy Montgomery said Munoz will receive credit for time served and that once he has served all his time, will be deported to Mexico through immigration services. He said he wasnt sure how long that would take, as paperwork has to be processed through corrections.
