Family thankful for murder sentence

Family thankful for murder sentence

PUEBLO, Colo. - The friends and family of Devin Clark continue to lean on each other  as they learn the sentence for the man who killed him.
 
"I think a lot of people were touched today and I think it went a lot better than I thought it would," said Tyler Clark, Devin's brother.
   
Timothy Trujillo agreed to a plea deal in September, a second-degree murder charge. He was sentenced Tuesday to 48 years. Before the sentence was handed down, Clark's family expressed their pain.
 
"It's been a horrific year. I mean, if I'm being honest, it's just been very challenging. It's been a faith tester, it's been hard, it's been emotional," said Heather Poole, Devin's mother.
   
Friends and family say Clark will remembered for his kind soul and what he leaves behind.
 
"He was 26. He left a legacy at 26, that's huge," said Tawona Katz, a family friend.
   
It's almost been a year since Clark was killed at the Iron Horse bar, and his family is trying to continue his legacy and make Pueblo a better place to live.
   
"Those who can and who are impacted have to go outside of themselves, and they have to give back to the community," Katz said.
   
As the family continues to live their lives, they are trying to forgive the man that ended Devin's too soon.
   
"I think that we all understand that that's pretty much how our life is going to be now. Our life has changed. So it's something that's completely changed us, and we have to get used to it. We have to get used to life without Devin," Poole said.
