A man on the FBI’s Most Wanted list has been sentenced to 48 years in prison for the execution-style shooting of two men in Evergreen in 2004.

Robert Otilio Montoya, 34, was a part-owner of a marijuana growing operation in Evergreen when the incident took place.

Montoya shot Ed Miller and Leland Travis four times each after finding them at a rental home where the plants were being grown. Miller and Travis were cleaning, as they had been hired to do, when Montoya entered the house and tied their hands behind their backs.
