23-year-old gang member convicted of killing two half-brothers in Oro Grande three years ago was sentenced to 25 years in prison Friday

20:01 |


Judge John Tomberlin sentenced Jorge Angel Lizarraga of Victorville according to the plea agreement. There was no victim impact statement before Tomberlin pronounced his judgment.

The defendant asked Tomberlin if he could have time with his family before heading to prison, but the judge said the courthouse wasn’t equipped for that.

Lizarraga pleaded guilty to the voluntary manslaughter of Walter Maradiaga, 21, and Erick Morales, 16. He also admitted to having used a firearm and helping a gang by committing the crime.

In January 2008, Lizarraga and Jesus Garcia got into an argument at a Victorville home with the victims, who were affiliates of a rival gang, San Bernardino County Sheriff’s officials said. Lizarraga and Garcia were members of the 18th Street gang, while the victims had connections to the MS-13 gang, according to officials.
