SAN ANTONIO — A judge has sentenced a man to 30 years in prison for strangling a man in a downtown San Antonio hotel room.
Thirty-six-year-old Ivan Aguilar was sentenced Tuesday for the December 2013 slaying of 42-year-old Vincent Diaz. Aguilar pleaded guilty in the attack in November.
The men met at a bar two days before Christmas 2013 while Diaz was in town from California for a relative's funeral. Diaz's body was found after he didn't go to the services.
Aguilar says he became enraged during a conversation. He will be deported to Mexico after serving his sentence.
