'Murder For Fun' Teen Alex Rios Sentenced to 67-1/2 Years


A district court judge on Friday sentenced Alex Rios to 67 and one-half years in prison for beating two homeless Navajo men to death with cinder blocks and other objects in July 2014.

Rios, who was 18 at the time of the attack, is one of three teens accused of killing Alison Gorman and Kee Thompson as they slept in an open field in northwest Albuquerque. Rios was found guilty in December of two counts of second-degree murder – each of which carried a sentence of up to 15 years in prison. He was also convicted of aggravated assault, tampering with evidence and armed robbery.
