A man convicted of being an accessory after the fact following a Colorado Springs homicide is being ordered to help pay for the victim's funeral.
Twenty year old Saul Grajeda received a four-year prison sentence last month after jurors found him guilty in the death of Antonio Marquez.
Authorities say the 24 year old was shot several times before his body was set ablaze in June 2005.
Defense attorney Cynthia McKedy says Grajeda shouldn't have to pay because he didn't actually cause the man's death.
But jurors decided Grajeda bought the gasoline that was used to burn the body, and helped dispose of evidence afterward an important enough role in the crime to justify restitution.
The 15-thousand-dollar funeral cost is being divided among the convicted defendants.
