ST. CHARLES, Ill. (AP) - A man already serving life in prison for murder has received a second life sentence for his wife’s 1990 strangulation death.

Aurelio Montano was convicted in October of killing his wife, whose body has not been found.

Kane County State’s Attorney Joe McMahon says Judge Karen Simpson imposed the second life sentence Monday.

The 58-year-old Montano is formerly of the Chicago suburb of Aurora.

He was convicted in 1998 of killing Juan Medina and Claudia Ramos in 1996.

In a statement, McMahon says Montano killed his wife because he believed she was unfaithful. McMahon says Montano rolled 35-year-old Maria Guadalupe Montano’s body in a carpet and buried it.

The carpet was found 18 years later after police received a tip. Trained dogs confirmed the carpet had held human remains.
