A Houston man who got into a fistfight with an 18-year-old at a southwest Houston apartment complex and then returned the next day and shot the teen’s father was sentenced to life in prison for murder, Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg announced.
“Having a gun means a person is taking on more responsibility, not getting more rights, and no one person should be judge, jury and executioner,” Ogg said. “There is absolutely no reason this argument had to be settled with a fatal shooting.”
Cecil Artelle Turner, 27, was sentenced to life in prison late Friday after a Harris County jury found him guilty after a weeklong trial for the murder of 36-year-old Anthony Mareno Jr. on May 12, 2021.
