Johnny Oquendo sentenced to 27 years to life

TROY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The man found guilty of killing his stepdaughter and stuffing her body into a suitcase was sentenced on Monday.

Johnny Oquendo received a maximum possible sentence of 27 years to life.

Last year, Oquendo was found guilty on all charges brought against him including murder, strangulation, and concealment of a human corpse.

During sentencing, Oquendo said that nothing ties me to murder except strong suspicion.

He asked for a delay in sentencing again but the judge denied the request and went along with sentencing.
