YAKIMA, Wash.-- A Yakima man faces 12 to 15 years in prison for a fatal shooting at a Halloween party back in 2009.
Marcos Rojas pleaded guilty today to charges of first-degree manslaughter and second-degree assault.
He previously faced murder charges for the shooting that killed 34-year-old Jason Baldoz and injured two others.
Rojas smiled at family members in the courtroom before accepting the plea deal, which upset Judge Ruth Reukauf.
"You know, this isn't a family reunion, there's nothing happy about this on any side... So right now, we need to take care of some business, which means I need your attention focused up here. Understood?" Reukauf told Rojas.
Rojas is a known gang member, and the judge made sure part of his plea deal required him to stay away from other gang members once he's released.
The judge will hand down the final sentence on February 8th.
