VINELAND, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey man convicted of strangling his estranged wife and suffocating her infant daughter has been sentenced to two consecutive life terms in a maximum security prison without possibility of parole.
A Cumberland County judge also sentenced 37-year-old Ricardo Carrillo-Santiago on Friday to another 10 years for unlawful disposal of human remains.
Prosecutors said the Millville resident killed 34-year-old Neidy Ramirez and three-month old Genesis at her Vineland apartment in 2015 and disposed of their bodies at a Fairfield Township game preserve.
Ramirez had three children, including one fathered by the defendant. Carrillo-Santiago's attorney portrayed him as a devoted spouse pushed into a blind rage by taunts Ramirez made about his manhood.
Carrillo-Santiago expressed remorse through an interpreter and asked forgiveness from everyone "especially my children.".
