REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – A Filipino man from the City of Edmonton in the Province of Alberta was sentenced to life in prison Monday after pleading guilty to second-degree murder.

62-year old Irineo Villaflor Odoy brutally stabbed his common-law wife, 52-year old Marietta Echavez in 2011, after a heated discussion.

Echavez reportedly slapped Odoy after he confronted her about allegedly cheating on him.

Odoy, a hospital cleaner at a university, then reportedly stabbed her 35 times with a box cutter.

He will have to serve a dozen years in jail before becoming eligible for parole. After he is paroled, he will be deported to the Philippines.
