Suspect in capital murder case found guilty

Kevin Soto-Bonilla

Kevin Soto-Bonilla, according to a series of reports, plead guilty to murder, abduction and gang participation and was sentenced to life in prison on Thursday after his involvement with the killing of Lynchburg teenager Raymond Wood in 2017.

The murder was drug related, and when killing Wood, Bonilla also cut off Wood's right hand.

He was one of six people facing charges after investigators in Bedford County found Wood’s body on Roaring Run Road in March of 2017. Soto-Bonilla is believed to be a member of the MS-13 gang.
