Man sentenced to 44 years in prison for killing one, wounding 2 others

ADAMS COUNTY, Colo. — A man was sentenced Friday to 44 years in prison for second-degree murder and attempted murder after killing one man and wounding two others, the 17th Judicial District Attorney’s Office said Friday.

Cesar Reyes-Marquez, 42, was found guilty in the July 2010 shooting after a dispute among several men.

Employees at two Aurora body shops near 3770 Wheeling St. got into an argument when Reyes-Marquez began firing at the men.

Servando Morelos-Avila, 35, was killed. Gabriel Campos, 38, and Hugo Perada Lopez, 31, were wounded.

An Adams County District Court jury in April convicted Reyes-Marquez on one count of second-degree murder, two counts of second-degree attempted murder and two counts of first-degree assault.
