By Mathew Wace Peck     Oct 30, 2013 in Crime
Santiago - The four men who were found guilty earlier this month of the murder in Chile of Daniel Zamudio have been sentenced to between seven years and life.
As reported by Digital Journal, the attack took place in Santiago de Chile, Chile, in March 2012.
Four men were found guilty on Thursday, 17 October of the murder of the openly gay 24-year-old.
In his statement after the trial, Judge Urrutia reiterated that the attackers also "burned Zamudio with cigarettes, beat him with glass bottles and broke his right leg with a heavy stone before they abandoned him in a park in the Chilean capital".
According to ABC News, a panel of three judges sentenced Patricio Ahumada Garay to life in prison.
BBC News, meanwhile, reports that two of the men who were found guilty, Alejandro Angulo Tapia and Raul Lopez Fuentes, were each given 15-year sentences; while Fabian Mora Mora, the youngest of the men, was jailed for seven years. His sentence was less, the BBC says, "because he co-operated with investigators and had no previous convictions".
