Life Without Parole for Killing Boyfriend

Last Friday a member of the gang the Latin Kings, Christian "King Joker" Almonte, was convicted of murder in the first degree for killing his boyfriend. Almonte who was 26, killed his 41 year old boyfriend Willie Escobar out of jealousy. Apparently Escobar was seeing other men. According to The Advocate, the two men had a secret relationship that has been going on for several years.

The jealous rage that Almonte went into following learning about his lover's infidelity caused him to stab his boyfriend 20 times with a kitchen knife. There were stab wounds in the heart, stomach, chest and back. Following the murder of his boyfriend, Almonte then stole his Toyota Camry and gave it to a friend. Almonte will serve life without possibility of parole for the murder of Escobar and he faces 12-15 years for motor vehicle theft that he will serve concurrently with his life sentence.
