NYC man gets prison in family stabbing
NEW YORK (AP) — A man has been sentenced to 45 years in prison for fatally stabbing his sleeping wife in a rage triggered by jealousy and then killing their two toddlers.
Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown says Miguel Mejia-Ramos was sentenced Friday.
He pleaded guilty to manslaughter last month for the January killings.
Mejia-Ramos told police he snapped after drinking and finding a photo on his wife’s phone of her with another man.
He grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed 21-year-old Deisy Garcia and their daughters, ages 1 and 2.
He was arrested near Schulenburg, Texas. Authorities say he was trying to flee to Mexico.
