Nebraska Man Sentenced to Life Plus Up to 80 Years for Murder of Fellow Inmate During Prison Riot

A Gage County man was sentenced to life plus 60 to 80 years in prison Friday for the killing of a fellow inmate who was stabbed more than 100 times during a riot at a Nebraska state prison.

The sentencing of Eric Ramos came over a month after he was found guilty in December of first-degree murder, use of a weapon to commit murder and tampering with evidence in the case of the 2017 slaying of Michael Galindo.

District Judge Rick Schreiner said the jury had plenty of facts to determine that Ramos was guilty, the Lincoln Journal Star reported. He added that when Ramos testified at trial, he gave jurors an opportunity to see his profile, which they could then compare to prison security video of the attack.
