Two Men Sentenced for October Murder

By  | 

Two men have been sentenced and will have to spend at least 20 years behind bars for beating another man to death.

Tyler Cruz, 24, received the stiffest penalty possible for Second-Degree Murder on Friday for the death of Adam Wells, 20. Danny Shaw, 21, received the same sentence in May.

Cruz was initially charged with open murder but pleaded guilty to Second-Degree Murder in April.

Wells' body was discovered bound and gagged in remote area east of Carson City in October last year.

Witnesses told authorities that Cruz, Shaw, and another man intended to teach Wells a lesson after he was captured on a hidden camera stealing drugs from Shaw's bedroom.
