A: Victor Bernard Trillo was convicted of second-degree murder in the shooting death of 19-year-old Aaron Miguel Corona in August 2000.

He was sentenced in January 2002 to 25 years to life in prison. Now 34 years old, Trillo is at the Correctional Training Facility in Soledad.

The shooting occurred as Corona was helping his aunt break up a party in the 600 block of Las Lunas Way in Sacramento’s Gardenland area, according to a story in The Sacramento Bee. The aunt said the party was wrapping up when she learned that a group of uninvited guests had arrived and was reluctant to leave. A fight broke out and shooting followed.

At the time of the shooting, Trillo was on parole after serving three years and five months for attempted burglary, resisting arrest and drug possession. Police said he had recently moved to Sacramento from Madera County.
