Albemarle County Circuit Court Judge Humes Franklin Jr. ordered Walter Antonio Argueta Amaya, a 21-year-old Salvadorean national, to serve two 15-year prison sentences consecutively— 15 years for first-degree murder and additional 15 years for murder by lynching— for a total of 30 years behind bars, the Daily Progress reported.

Amaya also received two suspended sentences— one ten-year sentence for abduction and one five-year sentence for criminal gang participation.
