A Galveston man was sentenced Monday to 15 years in prison for killing a man during an argument over loud music in 2017.

Jimmy Lester Caneles-Oseguera, 20, of Galveston, pleaded guilty to one count of manslaughter, reduced from murder, and was sentenced as part of a plea agreement, court records show.

A grand jury indicted Caneles-Oseguera in May 2017 in connection with the death of Jorge Herndandez-Escobar, 29, of Galveston.

Police accused Caneles-Oseguera of hitting Hernandez-Escobar multiple times in the face with a brick during an argument over loud music.

15 years for murder, out in 5-7.

5-7 years of listening to Bubba snore, priceless.

15 years for murder and 99 years in Alabama for abortion. Go figure

To be fair, the article doesn’t list the circumstances of the case.

[ninja] although the article doesn't list all of the circumstances, what happened to just calling the cops and let them handle it. You have ruined your life over loud music that was disturbing, really, what a dumb donkey (not going to use the other word for donkey but you get my meaning).
