SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) - A Southern California man who blamed a “government mind control project” for his actions in the point-blank shooting death of a store clerk has been sentenced to 93 years to life in prison

Junior Tejeda was convicted of murder in July after serving as his own attorney during trial. He was sentenced Friday.

Investigators said that in November 2010 Tejeda walked into a San Bernardino store and demanded the clerk open the register. Before the clerk could respond, prosecutors said, Tejeda shot the man once in the head.

Tejeda was identified as the murder suspect after more than a year when he robbed the same market again.

The San Bernardino Sun reports (https://bit.ly/2yj2IKf) Tejeda claimed as part of his defense that the government was controlling his mind at the time of the killing.
