LUBBOCK -- On Tuesday a jury in Hale County found Jose Luis Aguilar guilty of a 1992 murder case.  A few hours later Aguilar, 41, was sentenced to 28 years in prison.  

Aguilar was charged with shooting and killing Guadalupe Fraire who was 27 at the time. 

Aguilar raised a self-defense claim – saying he shot Fraire after he felt threatened. Aguilar said Fraire had threatened to beat him up; so, he shot Fraire three times at a rodeo arena in Plainview. 

Aguilar was found in Denver, Colorado after 21 years on the run.
