SINTON - A San Patricio County jury sentenced Remus Litoiu to 75 years in prison for the murder of his girlfriend at their home in Ingleside.
Litoiu, stabbed Maria De Leon, 35, but she survived long enough to escape to the sidewalk where she was found dead by a neighbor last October.
Officers followed a bloody trail from the sidewalk to the front door of the apartment. Litoiu was reportedly still at home and covered in blood.
Investigators believe domestic violence was the motive for the stabbing. He was facing up to 99 years in prison.
