A man who headbutted his attorney during his murder trial has been sentenced to 39 years in prison for shooting a man he believed was having an affair with his girlfriend. Eriberto Gonzales, 25, was convicted earlier this month of murder and sentenced Wednesday for the March 2007 ambush killing of Ezequiel Reyes, 25.

During the trial, Gonzalez headbutted his lawyer, causing a cut over the attorney's eye, in a disagreement over defense strategy.
