Murder trial ends: Quiceno found guilty on 4 of 5 counts

Ronald Quiceno, 38, of Detroit Lakes has been found guilty of the murder of Travis Buckanaga

The jury deliberated about two hours Tuesday afternoon before returning the guilty verdict. Quiceno was found guilty of four of the five counts he was charged with.

He was found guilty of second-degree murder with intent with the use of a firearm, second-degree murder without intent with the use of a firearm, assault in the second degree and prohibited person in possession of a firearm.

He was found not guilty of second-degree attempted murder. That charge stemmed from the shooting of Barris Guy, who suffered a non-life threatening gunshot wound to the neck.

Family members of both Quiceno and Buckanaga, who were seated in the gallery, cried when the verdicts were read.

Judge Lisa Borgen said Quiceno’s bail has been revoked until the time of his sentencing. A pre-sentence investigation will be held, and she said sentencing will not be held for at least 30-45 days.

As Quiceno was led out of the courtroom, he sobbed and said “love you” to his wife, who was seated a few feet behind him in the gallery. His sobs could be heard after he was escorted into the hallway and conference room outside of the courtroom.

The shootings occurred Jan. 26 at the Kountry Manor mobile home park north of Detroit Lakes.
