A third Colombian national has been sentenced for the execution-style murders of a man in Kansas City. Plutarco Tello won’t be eligible for parole, but did escape the death penalty in his life prison sentence. Two co-defendants weren’t so lucky. German Sinisterra and Arboleda Ortiz this week were both sentenced to death for the 1998 crime. The three men bound, beat, and shot a man suspected of stealing a quarter million dollars from a Houston, Texas druglord. These are the first two federal death penalties in Missouri’s western district federal court in almost 50 years.
