Carey McNeil Found Guilty in KY Murder
« on: March 07, 2008, 12:13:45 PM »
One of three men charged in the shooting and bludgeoning deaths of two men and the assault of a third at the Jefferson Square Apartments on Outer Loop last year was found guilty of murder last night by a Jefferson Circuit Court jury.

Carey McNeil could face the death penalty after jurors found him guilty of assault, robbery, kidnapping and murder in the death of Isais Perez Gallegos, 50, who was beaten with a hammer on January 12, 2007, after refusing to tell the three men where drugs were, according to court records.

The jury found McNeil, 21, not guilty of shooting to death Isaac Vidaurri Perez, 28. McNeil was also found guilty of assaulting another man, Angel Martinez.

On Monday, jurors will decide whether to recommend a death sentence for McNeil.

One of McNeil’s co-defendants, Jesus Francisco Solis, was sentenced on Monday to 30 years in prison after pleading guilty to two charges of murder, assault, robbery, kidnapping and tampering with evidence.

A third defendant Antonio-Marco Solis-Lopez is believed to be in Mexico.

The three men were accused of robbing Gallegos, Perez and Martinez at Soliz-Lopez’ apartment, shooting Perez in the head and beating Gallegos, according to court records. Prosecutors said McNeil put a pillow to the back of Angel Martinez’ head and shot him, but Martinez survived.

A Jefferson Circuit Court jury recommended that a Louisville man convicted in the murder of a man off Outer Loop last year spend at least 35 years in prison.

The jury, which deliberated over two days, decided against recommending a potential death penalty for Carey McNeil, who was convicted Friday of assault, robbery and murder in the death of Isais Perez Gallegos.

But jurors deadlocked in determining how many years McNeil should serve in prison. McNeil faces a minimum of 35 years for the murder conviction and, if the other charges are tacked on instead of running the same time, he could serve a maximum of 69 years in prison.

Judge Barry Willett will determine the sentence, which was scheduled to be heard June 23.

McNeil will be eligible for parole in 20 years.

McNeil is one of three men charged in the shooting and bludgeoning deaths of Gallegos and another man and an assault on a third at the Jefferson Square Apartments.

Gallegos, 50, was beaten with a hammer on Jan. 12, 2007, after refusing to tell the three men where drugs were, according to court records.

The jury found McNeil, 21, not guilty of shooting to death Isaac Vidaurri Perez, 28, but he was found guilty of assaulting another man, Angel Martinez.

One of McNeil’s co-defendants, Jesus Francisco Solis, was sentenced last week to 30 years in prison after pleading guilty to two charges of murder, assault, robbery, kidnapping and tampering with evidence.

A third defendant, Antonio-Marco Solis-Lopez, is believed to be in Mexico.
