Suspect in deadly beer pong game sentenced to prison

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A man is headed to prison after he was sentenced in connection with the murder of a teen in the South Valley.

Jack Trujillo was sentenced to seven years behind bars.

In 2015, Trujillo and a friend, Esias Madrid, showed up to a party. The two got into an argument after a game of beer pong, and Madrid fatally shot 18-year-old Arturo Villa.

Trujillo shot another victim in the leg.

Wednesday afternoon, Villa’s mother spoke in court.

“There’s not a day that goes by that my heart doesn’t grieve his absence, nor a day that I don’t go visit his grave,” she said.

Earlier this year, Madrid was sentenced to 16 years in prison for Villa’s murder. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
