Alvarez argued the victim could have survived the gunshot wounds had he received a blood transfusion. Silva was a Jehovah's Witness and it went against his beliefs. But the jury didn't agree with that argument.

I really didn't understand that silly argument in the first place. He shoots Silva, and then blames Silva's religion on his death! :S

 

Maybe he would have stood a better chance if he claimed the San Francisco 49ers loss of the super bowl was to blame.

I was wondering if that defense was claimed by him or thought up by his legal team.   Now found guilty, do you know the sentence?

 

From the article I linked above:

 

 

 

Quevedo was surprisingly calm and nodded his head when the jury read his first degree murder conviction. The jury found the 26-year-old guilty of killing Silva, and guilty of a special circumstance of committing the murder for the benefit of his gang. He's also guilty of discharging a firearm causing death, and possessing a firearm as a felon. This means Quevedo is looking at life in prison without the possibility of parole.
