Luna Luna gets life

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, WA- A man convicted of murdering the mother of his young son will spend the rest of his life in prison.

In the penalty phase of the trial, jurors Tuesday convicted Gregorio Luna Luna of aggravated factors in the stabbing death of his former girlfriend.

Prosecutors say Luna Luna harassed and assaulted Griselda Ocampo Meza on several occasions prior to her death in May 2010.

The couple had a son together.

Superior Court Judge Robert Swisher will sentence Luna Luna to the mandatory life term next month.

Luna Luna's son, who is eight-years-old, now lives with his grandparents in Mexico.
