OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) - An Oregon judge has sentenced a 31-year-old man to life in prison for fatally stabbing his wife’s ex-husband.

The Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/bblYeV) that Marcos Pico has no possibility of parole for 25 years. He was sentenced Wednesday in Clackamas County Circuit Court in the Dec. 13, 2011, death of Jonathan Waldorf.

The victim was ambushed and stabbed 16 times by an attacker dressed in black as Waldorf arrived home in an upscale Damascus subdivision late at night.

Jurors were told that Pico is married to Waldorf’s ex-wife, Stevanie. Waldorf and Stevanie Pico were in the middle of a child-custody dispute when Waldorf was killed.

Police contacted Pico after learning of the custody dispute. He told investigators he had not recently driven his car. However, unlike other cars parked nearby, his was not fogged up or covered in frost. Deputies who looked into the vehicle saw blood on the steering wheel and controls. They found more blood after obtaining a search warrant.
