The sentencing hearing for 21-year-old Ezayah Marcell Gomez Oropeza, of Burnsville, is scheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m.
Gomez Oropeza was arrested last fall after a fight on the 700 block of Eighth Street South left a 20-year-old man in a nearby home injured. The victim was identified by family as Chad Waldrop, who added he needed facial reconstruction surgery and five metal plates to be added to his face.
