Man sentenced to 60 years for Denver woman's strangling death

A 27-year-old man has been sentenced to serve 60 years in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree murder and assault for strangling his girlfriend.

The Denver District Attorney's office says Jose Vallejo-Cano was sentenced on July 12. He pleaded guilty in April to the charges in the death of 23-year-old Araceli Miranda.

Authorities have said Miranda was found dead in the back seat of a car in October 2016. According to court documents, Vallejo-Cano was found nearby hiding behind a trash bin.

Miranda's mother called police that morning to report her daughter missing. She also told authorities that she had received a notice that Vallejo-Cano had removed a monitored ankle bracelet.
