SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - A Santa Ana gang member has been convicted of murder in the killing of a gang rival whose body was burned after he was shot to death.
Jorge Andrade faces a sentence of life in prison after being found guilty Wednesday of murder and committing a felony while an active participant in a street gang.
Prosecutors say the 25-year-old Andrade and two fellow gang members kidnapped, then fatally shot 16-year-old Innocente Barrera in August 2004. They say Andrade then ordered that Barrera be left in a car and the vehicle set afire.
The two alleged accomplices are awaiting trial.
