CENTENNIAL, Colo. — An Aurora man serving a life sentence for killing a man has been sentenced to 48 years in prison in a second murder case. 

Alexander Albayero, 46, was sentenced for the January 2020 killing of David Guerrero-Rodriguez after pleading guilty to second-degree murder. 

The 18th Judicial District Attorney's Office said Albayero shot and killed Guerrero-Rodriguez in an alley in the 1400 block of Havana Street. Prosecutors said they may have been involved in a drug transaction. 

“This was an execution-style murder,” Chief Deputy District Attorney Andrew Steers said in a statement. “The defendant shot the victim 7 times. This was a senseless act of violence with no apparent motive.”

Prosecutors said bullets from the crime scene matched bullets from a handgun that was seized when Albayero was arrested in another deadly shooting from three weeks earlier in Adams County. 

In that case, Albayero was convicted in March of first-degree murder for killing a man who asked Albayero's wife to dance with him at a nightclub.

He was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. 

“This defendant senselessly murdered two victims in Aurora in a matter of weeks and he deserves to spend the rest of his life behind bars,” 18th Judicial District Attorney John Kellner said in a statement.
