A man convicted of killing a little boy more than 20 years ago will die for his crime, a jury decided Friday.

Investigators say Obel Cruz-Garcia kidnapped a seven-year-old boy during in a home invasion in 1992. The boy's stabbed body was found weeks later.

DNA evidence linked Cruz-Garcia to the crime two decades later while he was serving time in a Puerto Rican prison.

The same jury that convicted Obel Cruz-Garcia sentenced him to death.
