O.C. man sentenced in murder case involving porn magazine

August 31, 2010 | 10:32 pm

A Newport Beach man convicted of killing a liquor store owner after stealing a pornographic magazine was sentenced Tuesday to 25 years to life in state prison, authorities said.

Weston Scott Kruger stole the magazine from the liquor store in July 2007, the Orange County district attorney's office said. He was confronted by Hao Huynh outside the store on Newport Beach Boulevard.

The two scuffled, and the 6-foot-5, 275-pound Kruger pushed 100-pound Huynh to the ground, where he hit his head. Huynh had a 4- to 5-inch crack on the back of his head, and died the next day from massive brain injuries, prosecutors said.

Kruger was convicted in May.
