31-year sentence for fatal Federal Way shooting
An Auburn man who killed his ex-girlfriend’s boyfriend two years ago was sentenced today to 31 1/2 years in prison.
Michael Ray Fiorini, 28, pleaded guilty in February 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.
