A Crosby man who killed an acquaintance rather than repay a debt was sentenced to 45 years by a Harris County jury this week, Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg announced.
“Gun crime in our community is rampant because of cases like this, in which a relatively minor disagreement led to a cold-blooded murder,” Ogg said. “The victim’s family lost a son and a much-loved family member, and our hearts ache for them.”
Leonardo Abarca, 27, was sentenced by the jury after an eight-day trial in which he was convicted of murder for killing 25-year-old Mustafa Ahmed Marfani, of Humble, on April 7, 2016.
