A Los Angles dad will spend 78 years behind bars for stabbing dead his three sons inside their SUV in 2015.
38-year-old Luiz Fuentes had pleaded guilty to murder charges in connection with the tragedy that resulted from his inability to provide for his children.
Fuentes stabbed his sons Luis, 10; Juan, 9; and Alexander, 8; to death in the back of the SUV where they lived for months following their mom’s passing.
The father then tried to commit suicide by stabbing himself but was saved after being found slumped over in the same car.
Reports from 2010 showed that the boys suffered from abuse and were beaten by the father with a belt, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services.
Fuentes is being held at the Twin Towers Correctional Facility as he awaits transfer to a state jail.
