Rodolfo Perez

A man charged with killing two men last year was convicted of first degree murder Friday in Luzerne County.

Rodolfo Hiraldo-Perez faces a mandatory life sentence without the chance of parole.

Hiraldo-Perez, Angel Sanchez and Willis Gonzalez were charged with beating, stabbing and shooting to death Juda Hope and Vladimir Ruiz during a fight outside a bar last January in Hazleton.

Sanchez pleaded guilty Monday to third degree murder.

Gonzalez still has not been arrested. He is wanted for killing Juda Hope.
