Ernest Montoya became a priest on Saturday in front of an emotional crowd of friends and family members--including his five children and nine grandchildren. The silver-haired Montoya does not look the part of the typical newly ordained priest. On Saturday, the day of his ordination at Our Lady of Refuge Church in Long Beach, Montoya turned 63. "Happy birthday, dear Ernieeee," the congregation of more than 300 belted out to the strains of organ music.

A man pleaded guilty in La Junta to second-degree murder for setting his father on fire at the older man's birthday party as they argued over whether kerosene was flammable. Authorities said Thomas Martinez, 38, doused his father with kerosene, set him ablaze with a lighter and said: "You are going to die today.... Happy birthday. You are the candle." Ernest Montoya, 58, died several weeks after the 2003 assault.
