KSCB News - May 5, 2011 8:10 am

A southwest Kansas man has been
sentenced to 51 years and eight months in prison for killing his
sister in August 2009.
Fifty-four-year-old Luis Montoya, of Garden City, pleaded
no-contest in March to first-degree murder. He had been scheduled
for trial last month.
Montoya was arrested when police were called to the home he
shared with his 55-year-old sister, Maria Montoya, and found her
stabbed to death. An autopsy showed wounds to her head, chest, face
and arms.
Police have said Luis
Montoya appeared at the crime scene early in the investigation and
said, "I did it."
Family members testified the two argued repeatedly about
responsibilities in the home.
