A man whom authorities said was in the United States illegally has been sentenced after fatally stabbing his ex-girlfriend in Shakopee last year.

According to court documents, 35-year-old Fraider Diaz-Carbajal was sentenced to 40 years, with credit for 216 days served, on Friday.


Diaz-Carbajal was charged with second-degree murder in the Aug. 12, 2018 death of 27-year-old Enedelia Perez Garcia. Garcia suffered multiple stab wounds, according to police.

Diaz-Carbajal was initially hospitalized due to self-inflicted stab wounds before being released and taken into custody.

During the course of the investigation, authorities learned Diaz-Carbajal had re-entered the U.S. illegally after being deported in 2012.

He is expected to serve 320 months of his sentence in custody and the other 160 months under supervised release.
