CLEVELAND (AP) - An Ohio man who authorities say stepped in front of a large truck and then set himself on fire after fatally stabbing the mother of his three children has been sentenced to 30 years to life in prison.

Northeast Ohio Media Group reports (https://bit.ly/1hFVDrp ) that 29-year-old Hugo Ramos apologized on Tuesday in a Cleveland courtroom to relatives of 25-year-old Glorimar Ramos-Perez. Ramos stabbed Ramos-Perez at her Cleveland home Sept. 15, 2014, and then drove with his three small children to Lorain County where he tried to kill himself at the side of a freeway.

A jury convicted Ramos last week of aggravated murder, murder and kidnapping.

NEOMG reports that Ramos’ attorney argued throughout the trial that Ramos was mentally ill and wasn’t aware of what he was doing.
