ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Part of Nehemiah Griego’s family was out protesting against a judge’s decision to let the teen killer out of custody at the age of 21.
The small group battled the wind out at the University of New Mexico on Sunday to make their case.
In February, Judge John Romero decided Griego, who was 15 when he gunned down his parents and three siblings, would be sentenced as a juvenile and released in a couple years.
Some of the Griego family has strongly opposed that decision including his grandmother who had a message for Nehemiah.
District Attorney Kari Brandenburg has said she plans on appealing the judge’s decision.
