GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) -- A man has been sentenced to life in prison for murdering his former boss, a Kent County farmer.
A jury last month found Socorro "Coco" Hurtado-Garcia guilty of first-degree murder in the shooting of 50-year-old Ed Rasch of Alpine Township.
The 57-year-old Hurtado-Garcia was sentenced on Tuesday.
Rasch was shot once in the chest with a .38-caliber handgun as the farmer delivered paychecks to his staff in February 2010.
After the shooting inside the workers' winter quarters, Hurtado-Garcia taunted Rasch, standing over him and asking if he "wanted another."
Hurtado-Garcia had been laid off from his job two months earlier.
The victim's sister-in-law, Julie Rasch, told Hurtado-Garcia in court he was "not a man."
