2018-09-22 21:26
A California man convicted of stabbing a UCLA student to death was sentenced to life in prison. Alberto Hinojosa Medina stabbed Andrea Del Vesco 19 times inside of her apartment in 2015. He then set fire to the building in Westwood. Her body was burned beyond recognition. DelVesco was a fourth-year student from Austin, Texas, and a member of the Pi Beta Phi sorority. Medina was eligible for the death penalty but was sentenced to life in prison without parole on Sept. 21. “I feel relieved that he can never hurt another person,” Andrea’s mother Leslie said.
