A 36-year-old Rhode Island man who lived in Arizona under an assumed identity for years has received consecutive life sentences for a 2004 murder that occurred during a botched robbery attempt in Providence.
The state attorney general's office says a judge on Monday sentenced Ramon Virola to life in prison for first-degree murder. Virola got a second life sentence on a charge of using a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.
A jury convicted him in March of killing Christopher Nelson as Nelson tried to wrestle the gun away during a robbery attempt at his Federal Hill apartment.
Virola was arrested in 2011 in Arizona, where authorities say he was living under an assumed identity. He had been one of Rhode Island's most wanted fugitives.
