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.
