NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities say a man who’s pleaded guilty in the strangulation of a 15-year-old girl will get 25 years in prison and will be registered as a sex offender.

Bronx District Attorney Darcel D. Clark says 38-year-old Luis Vega will be sentenced on May 20. He pleaded guilty on Wednesday to manslaughter and first-degree criminal sexual act.

Destiny Sanchez’s body was found on Nov. 22, 2012. Vega was related to her father’s girlfriend.

Prosecutors say Destiny’s body was covered in bleach to destroy evidence after she was sodomized and strangled.

She died a week short of her 16th birthday.
