DAKOTA CITY, Nebraska — A 23-year-old Iowa man has been given life in prison for killing a northeast Nebraska woman.
Raymond Gonzales Jr. had been convicted of first-degree murder and a weapons crime. He was sentenced on Thursday in Dakota County District Court.
Police say Gonzales shot 28-year-old Bonnie Baker 16 times in her South Sioux City home on Dec. 15, 2013. His attorney, Todd Lancaster, of the Nebraska Commission on Public Advocacy, says he will appeal the verdict. Lancaster had argued during the trial that police focused only on evidence that pointed toward Gonzales.
