TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN9-TV) - A Tucson man has been sentenced to life in prison for his participation in a robbery that resulted in the death of his friend.
A Pima County jury convicted 21-year-old Carlos Yanez Peyron last month of felony first-degree murder and multiple counts of attempted robbery and kidnapping.
Judge Edgar Acuna sentenced Peyron Friday at a 9 a.m. hearing to life in prison with release possible after 25 years in the murder of 18-year-old Noah Lopez.
The judge ran Peyron's other six sentences along with the life sentence.
Prosecutors say Peyron and three others tried to rob two men at a car alarm installation business in Tucson on May 11, 2010.
Authorities say the men fired back at the robbers as they fled the scene and 18-year-old Noah Lopez was later found dead of a gunshot wound.
