ALFONSO SANCHEZ SENTENCED TO DEATH FOR 2007 WARMINSTER TOWNSHIP KILLINGS

Alfonso Sanchez

A Bucks County jury sentenced Alfonso Sanchez to death on Wednesday, May 3, 2023, for the killings of a man and woman inside a Warminster Township apartment in October 2007.

It marked the second time Sanchez was convicted and sentenced to death for the 2007 murders of Lisa Diaz, 27, and Mendez Thomas, 22. After he was found guilty of first-degree murder and sentenced to death in 2008 for the killings, Sanchez appealed his decision, and the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office agreed to grant him a retrial in 2017.

In the retrial, which began last week before Common Pleas Judge Alan M. Rubenstein, Sanchez was convicted on two counts of first-degree murder and related offenses. He was also found guilty of solicitation to commit murder in a plot to kill a woman who survived the 2007 rampage in the Bucks Landing apartments.

The family of the victims gave heart-wrenching testimony on Tuesday, the first day of the penalty phase.
