A Vallejo teenager was sentenced Tuesday to seven years to life in prison for attempted murder and 10 years for using a gun to shoot an ice-cream vendor in the chest during an attempted robbery last year.
Montenegro was a 15-year-old Hogan High School freshman when he and Joseph Beverly, then 14, tried to rob Amarjit Kaur as she sat in her ice cream truck on Springs Road in Vallejo. Beverly pleaded guilty to robbery earlier this year.
Kaur, a 39-year-old widow raising three children, was found slumped behind the wheel of Tony’s Ice Cream truck on Feb. 3, 2010. Montenegro shot Kaur because she apparently didn’t understand his demands or react quickly enough, investigators said.
