ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — An Albuquerque man was sentenced Thursday to 14 years in prison in a 2013 fatal shooting in Southeast Albuquerque.
Jashon Warren, 33, pleaded guilty in July to second-degree murder and possession of a firearm by a felon, and under his agreement faced up to 14 years in prison.
Warren was convicted of first-degree murder at a 2015 trial in the case, but he was granted a new trial because “prohibited information” made its way into the jury room, according to court documents. Warren has spent around five years in jail awaiting a resolution to his case.
State District Judge Cindy Leos said Warren only showed remorse after that conviction, and she imposed the maximum sentence.
According to court documents and Warren’s attorney, Warren and a friend committed a drive-by shooting near Alvarado and Zuni. Michael Moore, who was in a separate vehicle, was killed.
