Belvidere Man Convicted in 2013 Murder


After hours of deliberating, a jury found a Belvidere gang member guilty of murder.

Ricardo Garcia now faces up to 60 years in prison.  Prosecutors say that while he didn’t pull the trigger in the November 2013 shooting that killed Giovanni Galicia, he was driving the getaway car.

Garcia will be sentenced in November.

A second man, Ricardo Figueroa, was previously convicted for murder and is serving a more then 70 year sentence.  A third man is awaiting trial.
