LAS VEGAS — A jury decided that a 24-year-old man found guilty of murder, conspiracy and robbery in the iPad theft death of a Las Vegas high school student can have a chance at parole after at least 20 years in prison.

Michael Samuel Solid wept, asked jurors for leniency, and apologized to the family of Marcos Vicente Arenas, the 15-year-old killed in the May 2013 grab-and-run heist.

Arenas refused to let go and was dragged beneath a Ford Explorer driven by Solid after former co-defendant Jacob Robert Dismont grabbed the computer device and jumped in.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/2bJiqow ) that Solid could face another 21 years for his robbery and conspiracy convictions, and a deadly weapon enhancement.

The 21-year-old Dismont pleaded guilty before trial to second-degree murder and conspiracy. He’s awaiting sentencing.
