PORTALES, New Mexico -

A Portales man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for his involvement in murder last April.

Korbin Baldridge, 20, pleaded guilty to armed robbery and conspiracy to commit murder in the first degree back in February.

Reports indicated on April 7, 2019, the Portales Police Department responded to a home in the 400 block of Avenue B, where they found Adam Holts dead from multiple gunshot wounds.

Investigators determined Baldridge and his accomplice, Manuel Silva, 23, were responsible for the murder.

At the sentencing hearing Judge Mowrer heard from Holts' mother Edna Shriver who told the court, "The day after Adam died, I saw a billboard that said, “Hope is an empty casket.” If that’s the case, I don’t have any hope, because Adam’s casket is not empty."
