Grigoryan is accused of driving the black Mercedes-Benz sedan that on July 10 hit and killed Sandoval as she and a friend jaywalked across South Glendale Avenue near East Windsor Road, and then left the scene.
A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge on Tuesday sentenced two Glendale men to 15 years to life in state prison for beating a 17-year-old boy to death in 2004.
Fredy Gudiel, 21, and William Torres, 24, were found guilty in July of second-degree murder for bludgeoning William Maldonado with baseball bats on Oct. 6, 2004, as he rode his bicycle down the 800 block of South Columbus Avenue.
The mandatory 15-year sentence gave the judge no discretion over the sentence.
The two will be eligible for parole in 15 years and will receive credit for just under three years of time served, making them eligible for parole in 2019. The two were returned to the custody of the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department for transportation to the Los Angeles Department of Corrections.
Videotaped confessions revealed that a third man convicted in the murder, 25-year-old Pedro Pena, delivered the fatal blow to Maldonado’s head, prosecutors said. Pena is scheduled for sentencing on Sept. 18 in Los Angeles County Superior Court.
The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority will submit a proposal to the city of Burbank to build two buildings at Bob Hope Airport to comply with a federal mandate to alleviate security concerns and ease congestion in Terminal B, officials said.
The move comes in response to a July 31 letter from the Transportation Security Administration saying that space limitations in Terminal B — which is used by United, Skywest, American and Alaska airlines — is posing problems for the airport’s baggage-screening machine, said Dan Feger, deputy executive director for the airport.
