Worcester Man Sentenced to Life in Prison for 2015 Murder
Saturday, January 20, 2018
According to Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Earl Jr., Pedro Soils was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Solis, 28, of 45 Grand St., was indicted for the murder by the Worcester County Grand Jury in March of 2016.
“We have this verdict today in large part due to the hard work of the prosecutorial team, the Worcester Police Detectives and the head of our Victim Witness Advocates Margaret Rwaramba. Cherise’s family also played a huge role in the case, including her mother, Princilla Walker, who testified during the trial. The jury got it right,” said Early.
A co-defendant, Kevin Miranda, 20, of 33 Wellington St., testified during the trial.
He is expected to plead guilty to a charge of manslaughter at a later date and is to receive a sentence of 18 to 20 years in state prison.
