    Refugio Ruben Cardenas - California Death Row

    Refugio Ruben Cardenas

    Facts of the Crime:

    On October 9, 2003, Refugio Ruben Cardenas used a sawed-off shotgun to shoot Gerardo Cortez, 19, of Bakersfield and Jorge Montes, 25, of Visalia. Cortez, shot in the head, died at the scene; Montes, shot in the chest, spent a month in the hospital. Cardenas thought Cortez, Montes and three others were rival gang members, said Shani Engum, a supervising district attorney. He fired at another man but missed.

    Cardenas was sentenced to death in Tulare County on March 29, 2007.
