King County prosecutors are recommending a 31½-year sentence for an Auburn man who recently pleaded guilty to killing his ex-girlfriend’s boyfriend two years ago.
Michael Ray Fiorini, 28, pleaded guilty last week to first-degree murder, with a firearm enhancement, for breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s Federal Way apartment and shooting 27-year-old Christopher D. Johnson in the chest.
According to police, Fiorini smashed the sliding glass door to the woman’s apartment early in the morning of Feb. 24, 2011, and pointed a gun at her while she was on the couch. Johnson came out of a bedroom and was shot by Fiorini, police said.
Police arrested Fiorini a short distance from the apartment.
Fiorini is to be sentenced on April 11 at the Regional Justice Center in Kent. The sentence range is 25 to 311/2 years in prison, according to the King County prosecutors.The Seattle Times
