YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) - A Washington state appellate court has upheld the conviction of a man found guilty of killing the caretaker at a gun club in 2014.

The Yakima Herald-Republic reports (https://bit.ly/2vP6eer ) 28-year-old Luis Anguiano argued prosecutors wrongfully used evidence of a prior burglary to prejudice jurors against him, but a three-judge panel found that the court correctly concluded that the evidence established motive.

Anguiano was sentenced to almost 70 years in prison in 2015 for first-degree murder and first-degree assault in the shooting death of 32-year-old Charles Burkybile.

Anguiano was one of three men accused of killing Burkybile during an attempted home invasion at the Willows Gun Club on Jan. 25, 2014.
