CO: Ponciano Zendejas-Garces gets 24 more years

From the article: “A Department of Corrections inmate has been sentenced to serve an additional 24 years in prison after his manslaughter conviction in the 2010 death of his cellmate.”

According to the article, the inmate stated that he did everything that he could to avoid it.  Curious minds (mine) wanted to know more.  A little more googling reveals that he was apparently assaulted several times by the other inmate, who was taller, heavier, and younger than Zendejas-Garces.  Does this make it excusable?  Not according to the judge in this case.
