Phoenix - A teenager who admitted taking part in the murders of six Buddhist monks and three others in the largest mass murder in Arizona history was sentenced on Friday to 71 years in prison without parole. Alessandro Garcia, now 19, had pleaded guilty to the massacre at the Promkunaram Buddhist Temple in August 1991. Garcia's accomplice, Johnathan Doody, was sentenced earlier this year to 281 years in prison.
