Two More Men Sentenced in NW Missouri Homicide
SAVANNAH, Mo. (AP) -- The final two of four men charged in a 2009 murder in northwest Missouri are on their way to prison. Antonio Onate and Enrique Hernandez were sentenced Thursday in the stabbing and shooting death of Antonio Maravilla-Vargas of Savannah. They had earlier pleaded guilty to their involvement in the death. Prosecutors say Maravilla-Vargas was killed because he was having an affair with Onate's wife.
The St. Joseph News-Press reports that Onate was sentenced to life in prison for second-degree murder and seven years for felonious restraint. Hernandez was sentenced to 30 years for second-degree murder and 20 years for felony armed criminal action.
The other two men, Orlando Cruz and Jose Quintero, who shot and stabbed the victim, have already been sentenced to life in prison.
