The man accused of killing Alma Del Real in April 2015 has been sentenced to 60 years in prison.
The sentencing hearing on Friday, June 17, comes about one month after Alberto Cruz was found guilty of murder in connection to the April 2015 death of the 22-year-old woman.
Cruz was charged with murder in May 2015 after leading police to her body in a wooded area in Marshall County. Del Real was reported missing by her family April 13, 2015.
Cruz’s conviction in May came after three days of testimony. The prosecutor called several witnesses, including investigators, FBI agents, forensic specialists and a cell phone tracking expert.
Jurors deliberated for a little more than an hour before reaching a verdict.
