    Plea bargain in 1982 cold case slaying ires family members

    Family members of a man who was stabbed and beaten to death 30 years ago in Rowland Heights said they are outraged the alleged killers of their beloved brother and cousin could get relatively light prison sentences.

    Richard Hernandez, 20, was brutally slain on Aug.  8, 1982. He and a friend were visiting with two girls when they were attacked by three men. One of the men used a tire iron in the assault that left Hernandez’s friend with permanent brain damage.

    Leal and Corona might have slipped under the radar. But, in a twist of fate, Leal’s son, a promising boxer, was murdered in San Jacinto in May 2011.

    The slaying, known as the Facebook Murder, occurred after the younger Leal was lured to a park by a teen allegedly posing as an beautiful woman on Facebook.

    Judge throws out plea deal in 1982 Rowland Heights slaying

    Judge Douglas Sortino offered Gilbert Leal, 52, of Riverside County, and Marcelino Corona, 50, of Fontana, eight years in prison each and no credit for time served while in custody. They can accept his offer or go to trial instead.

    “You can talk to your client. If they are willing to roll the dice and face 15 years to life, we can go to trial,” Sortino told Corona’s attorney, Anthony Cavalluzzi.

    The judge gave the defense time to mull over the offer and set a Dec. 4 hearing.
