Silvestre Gonzalez, convicted of attempted murder in the first degree for his role in the shooting of his brother-in-law and nephew in October 2000, was held Tuesday at California State Prison, Los Angeles.
Deputy district attorney Jamie Verwayen appeared on behalf of the El Dorado County District Attorney’s Office and the victims’ family.
After hearing the evidence presented by Verwayen, Gonzalez was denied parole eligibility by the parole board for another 10 years.
The family reportedly expressed its satisfaction with the board’s decision, according to the release.
