REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – A Sacramento Superior Court judge on Friday afternoon sentenced the two men convicted in the 2007 shooting deaths of Fil-am Sean Aquitania and his infant son to life in prison with no chance of parole.

Chris Strong and Donald Ortez-Lucero were found guilty on March 18 for shooting and killing the 21-year-old Aquitania and his 7-month old son Sean Junior at point-blank-range back in Sacramento seven years ago.

Both men were found guilty on two counts of first degree murder, as well as one count each of residential burglary and attempted robbery.

The jury said that Strong and Ortez-Lucero set out to rob a drug house in South Sacramento when Aquitania arrived with his infant son, to visit a friend who lived at the residence.

During a struggle with Aquitania, the jury said Ortez-Lucero’s gun went off. The baby was hit in the head by that bullet.

The investigation revealed that after realizing his son had been shot, Aquitania flung himself on the gunman before he was shot and killed.

Lucero and Strong can still appeal the sentence.
