Portales juvenile convicted in murder of college student

PORTALES, NM (KFDA) - Portales teenager DeAngelo Montoya was convicted of second degree murder among other charges Friday

A jury also found Montoya guilty of aggravated burglary, tampering with evidence, and larceny in connection with the shooting and killing of college student Angel Vale. The incident happened back in 2010 when Montoya was only 13 years old.

Montoya was initially convicted back in April of 2011 where he was sentenced to live in a juvenile facility until the age of 21. However, the New Mexico Supreme Court overturned the court's decision last year and remanded the case back to Roosevelt County for a new trial.

Montoya was sentenced to the maximum penalty allowed by the juvenile system, and will remain in custody of the Children, Youth and Families Department until his 21st birthday.
