A Tucson man is facing a life sentence after being convicted late Friday of first-degree murder and other felony charges in a June 2011 deadly home invasion.
Manuel Jesus Pesqueira, 28, was accused of being one of two men who broke into a West Irvington Road apartment on June 29, 2011, seeking drugs and money.
Leonardo Cota-Leyva, 25, one of the apartment's occupants, was shot in the head and killed. A second man escaped injury.
Pima County Superior Court Judge Richard Fields will sentence Pesqueira to life in prison with or without the possibility of release March 13.
