Sacramento Man Pleads Guilty in His Wife's Strangulation

It is my understanding 1/3 of relationships (in the United States, I believe) are abusive. I find this very upsetting because (it is WRONG and) it does not have to be that way. Individuals die at the hands of the one they love because they (or others who are aware of the abuse) do nothing about it. Abuse is not godly...it is sin. And as a young pastor once stated, sin only gets worse! If you know about spousal abuse or child abuse that is taking place, do not be foolish! Do something about it. Here is yet another story of a domestic murder:

Sacramento man pleads guilty in his wife's strangulation

A man who strangled his wife and left her body in a ditch four years ago pleaded guilty today to second-degree murder.

Agustine Espino Munoz, 40, entered his plea for the killing of his wife, Jill Alamo, 42, whose body was discovered Nov. 8, 2007, in the 9900 block of Elder Creek Road.

Munoz entered his plea just as trial was getting under way in Sacramento Superior Court.
Judge Timothy M. Frawley scheduled Munoz' sentencing for March 15. Under the terms of his plea deal, Munoz is expected to be sentenced to 15 years to life in prison, a court official said.
