Pueblo man sentenced for 2015 mistaken identity murder

Posted: Updated:

Murder suspect Leo Montoya has pleaded guilty to first-degree murder charges in connection to the 2015 killing of Isaiah Vialpondo in downtown Pueblo.

Montoya was sentenced to 23 years in prison with five years of parole.

Vialpondo was shot and killed in the 200 block of Court Street in September of 2015 in what police called a case of mistaken identity.

Vialpondo was driving home from school at CSU Pueblo near 2nd and Court when he was shot and killed just before 4 p.m.  It was the second of two shootings involving Hispanic males driving silver BMW's in just three days.

Detectives eventually identified Leo Montoya as the suspect in his murder. Montoya was already in the Pueblo County jail, suspected of the attempted murder of Carlos Montoya, the victim of the first shooting.  

Police say Leo Montoya was going after a person responsible for shooting and paralyzing him.
