Hall sentenced for aggravated murder in Gresham robbery

After a jury in mid June convicted Theron Dalon Hall, 21, of the March 2003 aggravated murder of a Mexican immigrant at a Gresham apartment, the same jury decided Hall should spend his life behind bars with no possibility of parole.

Hall shot Carlos Hernandez-Sanchez, 31, in the forehead during a robbery at a Gresham apartment complex in the 600 block of Southeast 162nd Avenue on March 28, 2003.

Deputy District Attorney Chuck French said Hall and the victim were at apartment, which was frequented by drug addicts and prostitutes, at the time of the murder. Hall reportedly got mad at the victim for 'disrespecting him,' French said.

After the murder, Hall fled to New Mexico, where he opened fire on an occupied car - resulting in an eight-year prison sentence in that state for attempted first-degree assault. Hall will begin to serve his Oregon prison time after completing his New Mexico sentence.
