Cambara overheard the conversation, became jealous, and decided to rob Grisales by getting Lemus to lure him to a McDonald’s in Riverhead, prosecutors said.
When Grisales arrived, prosecutors said, Lemus got into his pickup truck and the two drove to a nearby buffalo farm, where Cambara and two accomplices were waiting.
Cambara and the other two suspects dragged Grisales from his vehicle and beat him with a shotgun before robbing the necklace and other valuables. Cambara then put Grisales in the pickup truck’s bed and abandoned the vehicle on a roadway a short distance away, according to prosecutors.
Cambara faces up to life behind bars when he is sentenced for the charges against him.
