Regardless of where justice comes from, the heart, heaven or the criminal justice system, sometimes believing that justice will be served is the best way to cope with the loss of a loved one. A mother of two boys, a seventeen-year-old and a seven-year-old, discussed how her husband was shot in front of their oldest son and she believes the criminal act was the result of her husband allowing the gunman to shoot him in order to save their son.
Apparently the would-be robbers approached the father and son demanding that they lie down on the ground. The seventeen-year-old did as he was told but his father remained standing. His widow believed he did this thinking that if they both were lying down the men wielding guns and demanding money would just shoot both of them and that by not lying down he was at least saving the life of his own son.
Two men have been charged with the death of the landscaper who came to the United States from El Salvador fifteen years ago. The two had been married nineteen years. Another suspect is also being sought at. The alleged gunman pleaded not guilty to charges of second-degree murder and first-degree attempted robbery. He said he shot the man because he would not lie down. He was being held without bail and ordered to return to court next month. Another suspect, an eighteen-year-old pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder. This suspect was found with a bullet in his pocket that matched the one that killed the El Salvadorian father.
Security video in a nearby delicatessen was seized by authorities confirmed the details of the shooting.
