Dominguez Found Guilty of Murder 19 Jan 13

A Hutchinson man has been found guilty of six counts of murder and one count of a felon in possession of a firearm in the shooting death of a Little Falls man.

A Morrison County jury Thursday found 37-year-old Jason Ray Dominguez guilty of four counts of 1st degree murder, two counts of 2nd degree murder, and one count of a felon in possession of a firearm.

Dominguez was convicted of shooting and killing his former cellmate Dustin Brown in Brown’s Little Falls trailer house in October of 2011. He then started a fire to cover up the crime.

The two had apparently gotten into an argument earlier in the day over drugs and money. Dominguez was reportedly upset that Brown owed him money.

After the verdict, Dominguez was sentenced to life in prison for the first count of first degree premeditated murder and 60 months in prison for the seventh count of possessing a pistol by an ineligible person. He will have no possibility of parole.
