Man who fatally shot brother sentenced to 50 years to life

Posted: Updated:

VISTA (CNS) - A man who fatally shot his older brother at the family home in San Marcos was sentenced Friday to 50 years to life in state prison.

Fermin Olano, 46, was convicted of first-degree murder in the death of Fernando Olano, who was about 16 months older than the defendant.

Deputy District Attorney Marnie Layon said Fermin Olano called 911 the night of Nov. 30, 2014, claiming he had shot his brother in the chest in self-defense when the victim threatened him with a knife.

Layon told the jury that the evidence was inconsistent with self-defense, saying three of the five shots that hit the victim were from behind and that he was probably trying to get away from his brother when he was shot.

The prosecutor suggested that the defendant planted a folding knife on the victim after the shooting.
