Mexican court hands down long sentences in massacre case - Fox News Latino: "The four men convicted of the murders of 15 young people attending a birthday party last year in Ciudad Juarez, a border city in northern Mexico, have been sentenced to serve 240 years in prison each, the court said.
Juan Alfredo Soto Arias, Aldo Fabio Hernandez Lozano, Jose Dolores Arroyo Chavarria and Heriberto Martinez were sentenced on Monday for the Jan. 31, 2010, massacre, the three-judge panel said.
The four men will serve their sentences at a prison in Ciudad Juarez, where the trial was held, and they must each pay compensation of 629,000 pesos (about $50,000) to the victims' families, the court said.
The four were found guilty of the killings in the Villas de Salvarcar section of Ciudad Juarez, located across the Rio Grande, from El Paso, Texas."
