Man Sentenced in Vicious Halloween Stabbing Death
SANTA ANA, calif. (KTLA) -- A Lake Elsinore man convicted of nearly cutting a man's head off during a deadly stabbing attack in 2006 has been sentenced to 25- years to life in prison.

Hector Delio Aguilar Jaramillo, 42, was convicted in February of killing his sister-in-law’s boyfriend on Halloween night in 2006.

Prosecutors say Jaramillo stabbed Roberto Martinez-Escamilla, 35, multiple times, cut the victim's throat, almost decapitating him and then broke a window and fled.

Martinez was the longtime boyfriend of Jaramillo’s sister-in-law.

Investigators did not arrest Jaramillo until 2010 when he was allegedly connected to the 2006 slaying through DNA evidence submitted to a law enforcement database after he was arrested in a Riverside County assault case, prosecutors said.
