SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — A man convicted of masterminding one of Puerto Rico's biggest mass shootings has been sentenced to life in prison.
Alexis Candelario had been found guilty earlier this year in the deaths of eight people and an 8-month-old fetus during an October 2009 bar shooting that also wounded 19 others. Among those killed was Candelario's cousin and godson.
The shooting occurred six months after Candelario had been released from prison after serving six years of an unrelated 12-year murder sentence.
He was arrested three months after the bar shooting aboard a 30-foot boat in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
A federal judge recommended Wednesday in setting the sentence that Candelario be put in a maximum security prison in Colorado.
