TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif. - A man convicted in the motorcycle dragging death of Johnny Gregory Jr. was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, according to the Tehama County District Attorney’s Office.

Ray Ray Cain Jr. was convicted of first-degree murder with special circumstances that the murder was committed by the means of torture. 

Cain Jr. was sentenced on Thursday after he was found guilty on Sept. 7. 

He used a rope to drag Gregory Jr.’s body behind his motorcycle during a police pursuit in Red Bluff in February 2021. 

The two men were neighbors as authorities said Cain Jr. attacked Gregory Jr. inside an apartment, threw him down the stairs and tied him to a rope before attaching the rope to his motorcycle. 

During the pursuit, the rope became loose and Gregory Jr. was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Cain Jr. was later arrested after he crashed his motorcycle.
