A gang member linked to a killing by a tattoo of the murder scene on his chest was sentenced Thursday to 65 years to life in prison.

In 2004, Anthony Garcia, 25, shot and killed John Juarez, 23, outside a Pico Rivera liquor store.

Nearly four years later, a sheriff's homicide detective saw a photo of Garcia's tattoo taken during an unrelated arrest.

The deputy realized the tattoo was the scene of the 2004 murder he worked on at the Pico Rivera sheriff's station.
