Slayer of Disc Jockey Gets 15 Years to Life

The 21-year-old cousin of slain Los Angeles disc jockey Rodolfo Garcia Cortez was sentenced last week to 15 years to life in prison for the 1986 beating death of the popular KWKW announcer.

Gustavo Garcia Aguilar, a Mexican national, pleaded guilty last month to second-degree murder after admitting that he struck Cortez, 43, on the head with a metal pipe and stuffed his body in a trash container. Aguillar told authorities that he had become enraged with his cousin after the older man accused him of stealing a car stereo and money from him, according to court documents.
