Prosecutors seeking 31 1/2-year sentence for 2011 Federal Way homicide
King County prosecutors are recommending a 31 1/2-year sentence for an Auburn man who recently pleaded guilty to killing his ex-girlfriend’s boyfriend two years ago.
Michael Ray Fiorini, 28, pleaded guilty last week to first-degree murder, with a firearm enhancement, for breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s Federal Way apartment and shooting 27-year-old Christopher D. Johnson in the chest.
According to police, Fiorini allegedly smashed the sliding glass door to the woman’s apartment early in the morning of Feb. 24, 2011, and pointed a gun at her while she was on the couch. Johnson came out of a bedroom and was shot by Fiorini, police said.
Police arrested Fiorini a short distance from the apartment.
Fiorini is scheduled to be sentenced on April 11 at the Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent. The sentence range is 25 to 31 ½ years in prison, according to the King County Prosecutor’s Office.
