Sioux City, IA (AP) — A Sioux City man is found guilty in the shooting deaths of two, and attempting to kill a third person.

27-year old Juan Nino-Estrada was found guilty of first degree murder by a Woodbury County jury Tuesday evening. He was convicted of shooting to death Yolanda Valdez, of Orange City and Michael Delgado, of Sioux City, and wounding Luis Sanchez, of Sioux City. The shootings took place Nov. 7th at Sanchez’s house.
Public defender Mike Williams told jurors in final arguments that Nino-Estrada shot the others because he feared they would hurt him. Woodbury County Attorney Terry Ganzel argued that Nino-Estrada was angry, having accused Sanchez of having sex with his girlfriend.
A first-degree murder conviction in Iowa carries a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole.
