Again, Jaron Grade, 36, was sentenced Wednesday to life imprisonment plus 20 years in the 2003 murders of Broadus Funderburke and Ricardo Cabera in Baltimore County Circuit Court.
Grade and Otis Jones were accused of repeatedly shooting both victims during a party in Essex. Cabera, 25, was shot three times and died at the scene. Funderburke, 25, was struck in the head, arm and torso and died later as a result of the wounds.
Grade had been convicted previously by a jury in 2004 and sentenced to life plus 20 years. But the original conviction was reversed by the Court of Appeals and Grade was convicted again of the murders by another jury on April 3, according to Scott Shellenberger, State's Attorney for Baltimore County.
The sentence was imposed by the Honorable Timothy J. Martin. The case was prosecuted by Garret Glennon and Matthew Darnbrough, Shellenberger said in a statement.
Jones was convicted of the murders in 2004 and sentenced to life plus 20 years.
