Illegal immigrant convicted of killing NFL player has additional years added to sentence



A Guatemalan national who has reentered the country illegally at least twice was convicted of killing an NFL player and his Uber driver. Now, a federal judge has added 42 months to his prison sentence for illegally reentering the country.

Manuel Orrego-Zavala, 38, swerved and struck Jeffrey Monroe’s vehicle after he had pulled over because Indianapolis Colt’s linebacker Edwin Jackson was feeling sick. Both men were killed instantly. He was sentenced to 16 years in prison. When that sentence is complete, he will be transferred to a federal penitentiary where he will serve the additional 3.5 years.

U.S. District Chief Judge Jane E. Magnus-Stinson handed down the sentence this week.

Fox News host Shannon Shannon Bream discussed the sentence with U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler as well as ways illegal immigration laws must be enforced to prevent further crimes committed against American citizens.
