Lubbock Woman Receives 40 Year Sentence for Murder

She pleaded guilty to the murder of a 68-year-old Lubbock man, now 35-year-old Enedelia Sepeda is going to prison.

Francisco Aguilar was found lying on the floor of his central Lubbock home last March. He had been badly beaten, and later died as a result of his injuries. Family members say Aguilar had no enemies, until that Sunday morning. "He didn't hurt nobody," said Mary Lopez, Aguilar's daughter. "He had a lot of friends. I love him. Left everything to the lord."

According to court documents, robbery is believed to be the motive behind the killing. Sepeda accepted a 40-year prison term, and may be eligible for parole in 20 years. But Assistant District Attorney Matt Powell says most violent offenders serve about 90% of their sentence. "I don't think she'll ever walk out of the penitentiary, and that was our intent today."

Following her court appearance, Sepeda had no comment for the media.
