“In a very short time, Lance Cpl. Segovia Lopez deeply impacted those who came to know him,” said Sgt. Maj. Benny Benton, the sergeant major of the School of Infantry-West. “His unselfish and honorable legacy will live on in our Corps.”
Born in El Salvador on March 7, 1997, Lopez’s mother brought him to Los Angeles when he was five, his obituary said. As a teenager, he volunteered to help homeless people and animals with a group called Cloud 9, and later enlisted in the Marine Corps and was named honor graduate of his boot camp platoon.
“I never met a man more humble and more determined than you,” one Marine said of Lopez in a remembrance video.
The pair of gang members are scheduled to be sentenced on July 8. Aguilar faces a maximum prison sentence of 107 years to life; Rios faces 50 years to life. A third defendant, Ricky Valente, pleaded no contest to accessory after the fact in June 2018, and is expected to serve three years of probation, according to the DA.

The defense specifically has accused Navy lawyers of conducting illegal surveillance of defense attorneys and news media using electronic tracking software secretly embedded in emails sent to the defense.
In court, prosecutors have said the email “auditing tools” they used were designed merely to detect the flow of emails without revealing their content, and were aimed at pinpointing the source of leaks from case files sealed by the judge.
The judge, Navy Captain Aaron Rugh, adjourned the hearing without ruling yet on the defense motions. But Rugh said he had already found the prosecution’s conduct amounted to a violation of the defendant’s Sixth Amendment rights to a fair trial under the U.S. constitution.
