A man who killed a 17-year-old El Capitan High School student over a drug deal and dumped his body near the San Vicente Reservoir on the Barona Indian Reservation was sentenced Friday to 21 years in prison.
Stanley Virgil Lloyd Jr., 20, pleaded guilty in April to voluntary manslaughter in connection with the fatal shooting of Christopher Carioscia of Lakeside.
The plea came after a jury deadlocked on a murder count. After he was imprisoned by Superior Court Judge John Thompson, Lloyd smiled and flashed a peace sign to his family and friends as he was led off.
Carioscia went missing on Oct. 26, 2010, after telling his family he was going surfing in Pacific Beach. His burned-out car was found the next day on the tribal grounds south of Ramona, and on Dec. 4, detectives found his body near the San Vicente Reservoir.
Lloyd was arrested at his Lakeside home in March 2011. A friend of the defendant told detectives that Lloyd grew tired of buying the anxiety prescription drug Xanax from Carioscia and hatched a plan to steal drugs from the victim and kill him, prosecutor David Williams III said.
Sheriff's authorities said Carioscia was shot several times with a .357-caliber handgun sometime between the evening of Oct. 26, 2010, and the next morning.
"I am very angry," the boy's mother, Monika Pyskata, said outside of court. "He took my baby for no reason. He never told me why."
She said her son knew the defendant from as far back as middle school and was unaware of problems between the two. She had never met Lloyd, she said.
Pyskata told Lloyd she hopes he "burns in hell," and added, "My life as I know it is over, my baby is gone, but I do feel like some kind of justice is served."
"He had like about 60 pills on him, so if he kill him for 60 pills, that's pretty pathetic, that's not worth my son's life," Pyskata said.
Pyskata said her son's drug involvement was fueled, in part, by the suicide of a friend. He talked several times of his own death, and a couple of weeks before he was gunned down, told her to be a good mother to his now-10-year-old sister should he die, she said.
There was so much tension between the two families, a sheriff's deputy escorted Pyskata from the courthouse. Several of the defendant's relatives flashed 10News cameras the middle finger, and they also snickered in court while Pyskata read her victim impact statement.
Pyskata said her son had plans to go to community college and become a firefighter.
