Guilty verdict in 2005 KCMO slaying

Aldo Martinez, 21, was convicted Thursday of murdering Raul Garcia Jr., 19, back in 2005, Joe Lambe reports.

Martinez had been roughed up by a rival gang and went looking for revenge, prosecutors said. He didn't see the other gang, but he did go after Garcia, who had nothing to do with the original attackers. Martinez' attorney says he was only defending himself because Garcia took a swing at him.

From the story:  Witnesses said he (Martinez) then wiped the knife clean, kissed it and screamed the name of his gang.
