Killer Sentenced to Life
A convicted killer was sentenced Tuesday by a Luzerne County judge to life in prison.
Rodolfo Hiraldo-Perez was found guilty of first-degree murder in March.
Investigators said Perez, along with Angel Sanchez, stabbed Vladimir Ruiz to death during a fight outside a bar in Hazleton in January, 2011.
Sanchez pleaded guilty to third-degree murder Monday and is awaiting sentencing.
Police are still looking for Willis Gonzalez who investigators believe shot and killed Ruiz’s friend, Juda Hope, during that same fight in 2011.
