67-year sentence in Pasco ‘onion fields’ murder



PASCO, Wash. (AP) — A man convicted of killing a Pasco man who arranged farmworker jobs in onion fields was sentenced Tuesday to 67 years in prison.

Thirty-one-year-old Ramon Garcia-Morales was convicted June 8 of murder and attempted murder for the 2008 shooting that killed Alfredo Garcia and paralyzed his wife.

Franklin County prosecutors said Garcia-Morales blamed Alfredo Garcia for his lack of work and financial hardship.
