Minn. Judge Sends Man To Prison For Killing Iowan

Minn. Judge Sends Man To Prison For Killing Iowan
JACKSON, MN - A Minnesota judge has sentenced a man to 44 years in prison in the kidnapping and killing of an Iowa teenager in 1997.

A Jackson County jury in January convicted Juan Humberto Castillo-Alvarez of aiding and abetting second-degree murder and felony kidnapping.  Castillo-Alvarez was sentenced Thursday to 40 years in prison on the murder charge and four years for kidnapping.

Prosecutors say members of a gang kidnapped Gregory "Sky" Erickson in Spencer and killed him in southern Minnesota over a drug debt. 

Castillo-Alverez fled to Mexico. He was eventually extradited to Iowa and convicted in 2008. The Iowa Court of Appeals reversed the conviction, saying he was denied a speedy trial. He was sent to Minnesota to face charges in Erickson's death.
