    WA - Velma Tirado, 45, found murdered, Tacoma, 27 Aug 2006

    Brandon Lee Farmer, 29, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 45-year-old Velma Tirado.
    Farmer and another man picked up Tirado in downtown Tacoma, where she was working as prostitute Aug. 27, 2006. They drove in a truck to an alley near South 19th Street and Fawcett Avenue, where other people who were parked nearby reported hearing gunshots.

    The other man, who said he was the driver, told California investigators last month that Farmer shot Tirado in the head after she had sex with him in the truck in the alley.

    Jury convicts man accused in Tacoma cold case murder
    The man who murdered a Tacoma prostitute nearly 10 years ago was finally convicted of the crime.

    Brandon Lee Farmer, 30, was convicted of first degree murder Friday in the shooting death of Velma

    Tirado.

    (...)


    Detectives weren't able to identify any suspects during the original investigation, and the case was soon transferred to the Tacoma Police Department's Cold Case Unit.

    (...)

    After nearly a decade of silence, police say Farmer's passenger on the night of the murder, Dusty Titus, admitted to being being in the truck when Tirado was killed.

    A Tacoma police detective and an FBI agent arranged an interview with Titus, which is when he identified Farmer as the shooter.

    (...)

    Farmer is scheduled to be sentenced on April 14

    Brandon Lee Farmer, 30, was sentenced to 407 months in prison for the 2006 shooting death of Velma Tirado...
    Doing the math, that's 33.92 years.
