DNA evidence reportedly linked Geovanni Borjas to both murders, and it was determined that he sexually assaulted the victims as well. He was arrested in 2017, but the trial was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, KTLA reports.
On Oct. 31, Borjas entered a plea of first-degree murder, forcible rape, and kidnapping. He also admitted to special circumstance allegations of multiple murders and murder during the commission of a rape.
On Monday, Dec. 12, Borjas was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, according to KTLA. Initially, prosecutors were reportedly seeking the death penalty.
