PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — A man who shot and killed a Caltech employee on campus in 1995 has been sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.
Fifty-seven-year-old Raul Romero was sentenced Thursday. He also was told to pay $9,000 to the victim's family for funeral expenses.
Prosecutors say Romero gunned down Javier Mora in April 1995 as the custodian had lunch with co-workers at the Pasadena school.
A witness testified that Romero was angry over Mora's relationship with his estranged wife.
Romero fled after the killing. He was arrested in Mexico in 2010 and convicted last December of second-degree murder.
