Stiff penalty is sought in case of murdered agent

Prosecutors are seeking the maximum penalty of 50 years for Howen Steven Brown, the main suspect in the robbery murder of a judicial agent.

The defense is expected to present its closing arguments today in the Juzgado Penal Juvenil de San José, said the Poder Judicial.

The victim, Fernando Calvo Monge, was gunned down as he walked home from work Feb. 18, 2011, in the park of Urbanización Las Luisas, Barrio Córdoba, Zapote. He was a member of the Sección de Cárceles of the Judicial Investigating Organization.

A 17-year-old already has been sentenced to 10 years confinement for the same crime.
