A Santa Maria man was sentenced Monday to 158 years in state prison for the drive-by murder of Arroyo Grande teenager Gabriel Salgado.
Yepez, 22, is a reputed gang member who chose victims indiscriminately, according to prosecutors.
An effort by Yepez to gain a new trial was denied just prior to his sentencing.
