RI man accused in killing guilty on crack charges
PROVIDENCE, R.I.—A man facing charges in the 2010 killing of a Pawtucket man has been found guilty of federal charges of selling crack cocaine.
Rolando Rojas was found guilty Wednesday of selling crack to federal agents on three separate occasions in 2011. He faces a minimum sentence of 10 years and a maximum sentence of life in prison. Sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 9.
Rojas was indicted by a state grand jury earlier this year on first-degree murder and conspiracy charges in the death of Alfredo Barros, who was shot dead while waiting at a traffic light in Pawtucket.
