Sentencing has been delayed for three men found guilty in December of a violent crime spree. In October of 2015 five men including Jose Luna and two brothers both named Felix Ruben Ayala engaged in a series of crimes targeting marijuana, guns and cash. They murdered 61-year-old Bradley Stephen Yoder at his house on Shasta View Drive, attempted a robbery with a shot fired at a Shasta Lake home, and posed as federal agents to rob the Bare Roots Hydroponics Store on East Cypress Avenue. The three men were found guilty by a Shasta County jury of all 35 felony counts against them, including special allegations. Sentencing had been scheduled for last Friday but one of the Ayala brothers has a new attorney who needed more time to file a motion, and both attorneys for the other two men were apparently too ill to make it to court. The new sentencing date is March 23rd. The very next day after that, a trial is set to begin for a fourth defendant, 31-year-old Sergio Martinez. A fifth defendant in the case, 19-year-old Elionaid Rivera, hanged himself in Shasta County Jail in November. He had already taken a plea deal, after which he confessed to slashing Yoder’s throat.
