Vail man gets life prison terms in deaths of wife, daughter

August 19, 2019

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A Tucson-area man accused of murdering his wife and daughter last year and attempting to kill his teenage son has been sentenced to at least 71 years in prison.

Pima County prosecutors say Hernando Enriquez was sentenced Monday to two consecutive 25-to-life sentences and 21 years for the attempted murder charge.

He’ll have to spend at least 71 years in prison before becoming eligible for parole.

The 46-year-old Enriquez pleaded guilty in June to two counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted murder.

He was charged with killing his 43-year-old wife Sandra Enriquez and his 15-year-old daughter Isabelle Enriquez at their Vail home in February 2018.

Authorities say Enriquez’s 17-year-old son was hit with a hammer, but he was able to run to a neighbor’s house for help.
