Long sentence sought in Wenatchee slaying

The Chelan County prosecutor says he'll
seek an exceptional sentence against a man accused of killing a
Good Samaritan.
     The Wenatchee World reports (http://bit.ly/mZqsDU ) Prosecutor
Gary Riesen filed papers Wednesday citing a state law that allows
stiffer penalties for people convicted of hurting others trying to
provide aid.
     Fifty-year-old Juan Manual Gonzalez-Gonzalez is charged with
manslaughter in the death last June of 53-year-old Jose Guadalupe
Garcia-Sevilla in Wenatchee.
     Investigators say Garcia offered to help Gonzalez with his
stalled van and Gonzalez punched him. He fell to the ground, struck
his head and died of a skull fracture.
     The standard sentence for manslaughter is about seven years in
prison.
