A man convicted of the stabbing death in Sacramento's Tahoe Park could face 86 years to life.

In a jury trial that concluded yesterday in Sacramento Superior Court, Rodney Bruno was convicted of first degree murder in the stabbing death of Virgil Torres. According to information presented in the case, on October 2, 2016 Bruno was upset with Torres when they started to argue at a Tahoe Park residence. 

The argument quickly escalated into a physical fight with Bruno stabbing his victim multiple times that resulted in his death. Allegations that Bruno suffered a 1980 prior conviction for voluntary manslaughter and a prior 2008 conviction for robbery will be decided at sentencing. 

Bruno is scheduled for November 17, 2017 in Department 31 by Judge Michael Kenny.
