A 28-year-old man entered a no contest plea today for fatally stabbing his grandmother in 2014, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.
Armando Sepulveda of Los Angeles entered the plea to one felony count of voluntary manslaughter with a knife use allegation.
Deputy District Attorney Irene Lee with the Family Violence Division said Sepulveda was immediately sentenced to 12 years in state prison with no credit for the more than five years of time already served.
On Oct. 20, 2014, Sheriff’s deputies were called to check on Anna Sepulveda, 59, when she failed to show up for work at her daughter’s Alhambra business. When deputies arrived at the victim’s East Los Angeles residence, they discovered the victim’s body in the kitchen and arrested Sepulveda, who was living with his grandmother, the prosecutor said.
Case BA430707 was investigated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
