POMONA, California – A Filipino man convicted of murdering his Filipina wife has been sentenced to life behind bars.

Tomas Infante was sentenced 25 years to life in prison with the possibility of parole.

He was convicted last month of murdering his wife Charito Tolentino, after his girlfriend had discovered he was married.

Infante allegedly beat and stabbed Tolentino to death at their home. He then left her body inside a car at a casino parking lot.

He was arrested shortly after she was reported missing.
