FATHER who brutally killed his 3 children during a frenzied attack has been jailed for 78 years.
Luiz Fuentes, 38, pleaded guilty to three counts of first-degree murder and has been sentenced to 78 years in jail.
Unemployed Fuentes admitted to stabbing to death his 3 sons in an SUV they had been living in, in East 32nd Street, Los Angeles on September 9, 2015.
The lifeless bodies of Alexander, 8, Juan, 9, and Luis, 10, were spotted by a passerby in the SUV parked outside a South Los Angeles furniture warehouse.
The Los Angeles Times reported that Fuentes had become depressed after his wife died of a brain aneurysm in 2008.
A cousin of the family, Rene Chanquin, said: “[Fuentes] wouldn’t have gone to the hospital and said I need help because I am depressed.
“He wasn’t that type of person. He was a very traditional type of guy.”
Online jail records show that Fuentes is currently held at the Twin Towers Correctional Facility, awaiting transfer to a state prison.
