Justice Sandcroft made his ruling after reviewing all the evidence in the case, including testimony given by Iran Jones, a witness to the murder who testified and was later found dead himself in June of this year.

Jones’ testimony helped seal the fates of Miranda and Contreras. There was another witness who had testified and later recanted his statement, but the other evidence in the case was strong enough to convict Miranda and Contreras.

Justice Sandcroft has reserved judgment for December 7. The men were represented in the trial by attorneys Darrell Bradley and Arthur Saldivar, however, neither attorney was present in court today.
