Man Sentenced For Death Of Accomplice In Windsor Robbery

WINDSOR, Calif. (AP) - A man convicted in a Windsor home-invasion robbery during which his accomplice was killed has been sentenced to 29 years in prison.

Antonio Pulido and another man, Jose Quiroz, initially were charged with murder in the death of their accomplice, who was killed in a shootout with a resident of the house. Twenty-year-old Max Martinez was fatally shot as the three entered the home looking for marijuana and cash.

The 24-year-old Pulido was sentenced Thursday as part of a plea
agreement that dropped the murder charge in exchange for his plea
to assault and burglary. The deal called for a 29-year sentence.

Pulido had unsuccessfully tried to withdraw his no-contest plea, saying he didn't understand the ramifications.

Quiroz is scheduled to be sentenced under the same plea deal next month.
