Court sentences Sked and Quinata to Life in Prison for Slaying Former Humatak Mayor Daniel Sanchez

August 15, 2022- Tamuning, Guam- Joyner Scott Sked and Rudy Fegurgur Quinata, the pair who killed Daniel Quinata Sanchez, the former mayor of Humåtak, were sentenced today to life imprisonment by Judge Vernon P. Perez. Sked will also serve 20 years consecutive to the life sentence for using deadly weapons to kill Sanchez.

Prosecuting Attorney Leonardo M. Rapadas handled the case and Prosecutor Minji Kim was his co-chair at trial.

Sanchez was stabbed with scissors and bludgeoned with a hammer, then padlocked in Quinata and Sked’s Humåtak shack. Police officers found Sanchez after being called to do a welfare check at the residence, and had to cut the padlock that was used to secure the door from the outside.
“We want to recognize the hard work of prosecuting attorneys Rapadas and Kim, and the Guam Police Department for ensuring that violent offenders are held accountable,” said Attorney General Leevin T. Camacho. “These jobs are not easy, yet they show up each day committed to seeking justice and working for the people of Guam.”

Sked was convicted in February for Murder as a First Degree Felony, Aggravated Assault as a Second Degree Felony, and two charges of Special Allegation of the Use of a Deadly Weapon in the Commission of Felony. Quinata was convicted of Murder as a First Degree Felony in April. Under Guam law, Sked will be eligible for parole after serving up to 35 years incarceration and Quinata will be eligible after serving 15 years.
