A 22-year-old gang member has been sentenced to at least 57 years in prison after being convicted for a fatal shooting in Salinas in 2013, Monterey County prosecutors said today.
Jaime Murillo, also known as Chato, is a member of the Sureno street gang and was convicted of the March 14, 2013, murder of Olajuwon Milligan, prosecutors said.
Murillo was sentenced to seven years in prison for possession of a stolen firearm with a gang enhancement. After those seven years are over, Murillo will also serve a subsequent sentence of 50 years to life for first-degree murder.
Judge Julie Culver went with the maximum sentence for both crimes.
Prosecutors said that Murillo and Milligan exchanged words near Alisal High School. In an attempt to defuse the situation, Milligan and his girlfriend left the scene.
Murillo followed him, repeatedly shooting the victim in the back, head, neck and chest. Prosecutors said that Milligan died in his girlfriend’s arms.
