HAZ DOUBLE HOMICIDE 5-VO perez

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.
