Va. teen gets 28 years in gang slaying

A Fairfax County youth who was 16 when he participated in the beating death of a rival street gang member last year was sentenced Friday to 28 years in prison. Mario Reyes, now 17, acknowledged bringing a baseball bat to Woodlawn Park in November 2009 along with a fellow member of the Mara Salvatrucha gang, Francisco Gonzalez Sanchez, who was also 16. Gonzalez had been in the Fairfax juvenile jail for malicious wounding in November 2009, with a prior conviction for malicious wounding, when he was allowed to leave with his mother for a dentist's appointment, testimony in a court hearing showed. Gonzalez did not return from the appointment.
