Tehama County Man Sentenced To 110 Years For “Execution” Style Murder

A 39-year-old Tehama County killer has been given a prison sentence of 110 years. On the evening of August 3rd, 2020, 52-year-old Arturo Eugene Bent the Third stumbled into FoodMaxx in Red Bluff and collapsed. He had a gunshot wound to his upper chest which proved to be fatal. Red Bluff Police got an arrest warrant for Elfego Chavez-Acevedo. He eluded the law for four months and was finally captured after a long standoff in Corning. A jury convicted him in November. In sentencing Acevedo on Thursday, the judge described the killing as an execution. Acevedo had multiple prior felony convictions, including two strikes, and he was on parole when he committed the murder.
