ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A Jemez Pueblo man has been sentenced to 32 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to second-degree murder.

Prosecutors say 25-year-old Lucas Michael Ray Toledo also was sentenced Tuesday to five years of supervised release.

Toledo was arrested in September 2010 on a criminal complaint alleging that he killed a 21-year-old man who was also a member of Jemez Pueblo.

Toledo told authorities that the victim repeatedly disrupted him as he was trying to sleep by knocking on his bedroom window.

Prosecutors say Toledo went outside and stabbed the victim repeatedly with a box-cutter razor and kitchen knife and also beat him with a shovel.

Proceedings in the case were delayed by competency proceedings.

Toledo pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the case last September.
