Rapper convicted of murder in Spokane shooting

SPOKANE, WA

John Castro was convicted Thursday of second-degree murder in the November 2011 shooting of 21-year-old Jose A. "Junior" Solis, a rapper from Moses Lake.

The 28-year-old Castro has two previous convictions for violent crimes and faces a mandatory life sentence as a three strikes offender.

The Spokesman-Review reports about a dozen sheriff's deputies lined the courtroom, separating friends and families of Castro and Solis, when the jury returned with the verdict.
