KCMO Man to Spend Life Behind Bars for Triple Homicide
LIBERTY, Mo. — A Kansas City man found guilty last year in a 2011 triple homicide at a Northland hotel will be spending the rest of his life behind bars.
Isaac Perdomo-Paz, 20, was found guilty back in November of the February 26, 2011 murder of three people at the Red Roof Inn near I-435 and Armour Road in Randolph. On Thursday, Clay County Circuit Court Judge Anthony Gabbert sentenced Perdomo-Paz to two life sentences without parole for two first-degree murder charges, life in prison for second-degree murder and an additional 150 years for three counts of armed criminal action in the case.
According to police, Armin Hamidovic, Dejan Joksimovic – both 18 – and 22-year-old Delfino Elizondo were attending a party at the motel when they were shot execution-style in an incident that began as a fight over Perdomo-Paz’s former girlfriend.
Police say that 10 to 20 people were in and around the motel room when the men were killed. Police say that Perdomo-Paz, aka “Spider,” is a member of the “Junior Division” of the East Side Loco street gang, although they say that the shooting wasn’t directly gang-related.
Attorney’s for Perdomo-Paz claimed that investigators had the wrong man, and that their client could not have pulled the trigger. They say that they plan to appeal the sentence.
In his ruling, Judge Gabbert called the shooting one of the most brutal crimes in Clay County history.
