The illegal alien from Mexico was cleaning his gun when it fired through the wall, then through a refrigerator and into the body of Michael Kornacki.

Judge Jim Murphy will sentence Salas-Miranda to 10 years in state prison, then he'll serve another two years in federal prison before he's deported to Mexico.
