ATLANTIC CITY, New Jersey — A state appellate court has ruled that a man convicted of carjacking and killing an Atlantic City casino visitor must get a new sentence.
But The Press of Atlantic City (http://bit.ly/1FfjKr0 ) reports that Tuesday's ruling shouldn't make much difference in Craig Arno's 120-year sentence.
The 50-year-old Arno filed several appeals. But the appellate judges only found that the sentencing needed to be redone to merge some counts together.
Arno was convicted in 2012 in the carjacking and killing of 47-year-old Martin Cabellero. The North Bergen man was in Atlantic City in 2010 to celebrate his daughter's 22nd birthday when he was abducted from the Trump Taj Mahal parking garage by Arno and his then-girlfriend.
Authorities have said Cabellero was stuffed inside his car's trunk and latter stabbed to death.
