Ex-DJ Gets Life for Arranged Killing of Man
A former country music disc jockey was sentenced Friday to life in prison without the possibility of parole for the murder of a man in 2003.
Alan Lama conspired with Cathleen Quinn, a Victorville woman he met in an Internet chat room, to kill Quinn’s husband, James Quinn.
In January 2003, Lama waited for the couple off a dark street in Rancho Cucamonga, and when Cathleen Quinn stopped her vehicle, Lama stabbed James Quinn, then strangled him.
Cathleen Quinn, who accepted a plea bargain to second-degree murder this year, was sentenced Sept. 17 to 15 years to life in prison.
