South Florida man gets life in prison for fatal carjacking
A South Florida man has been sentenced to life in prison for a fatal carjacking
A Miami-Dade judge sentenced 26-year-old Cesar Ruiz on Tuesday. He was convicted in October of first-degree murder.
Authorities say Andres Felipe Del Castillo was on a break from work in June 2007 when Ruiz and 18-year-old Emilio Perez-Tejon pulled him over using police-type lights. Ruiz held Del Castillo at gunpoint while the two drove off in Del Castillo's 1996 Impala. Perez-Tejon was later arrested in possession of Del Castillo's ID and credit cards and told police about Ruiz.
