SALEM, Ore. (AP) - The Marion County district attorney’s office says a 21-year-old man has pleaded guilty to the February 2014 murder of an 18-year-old Woodburn, Oregon, man and been sentenced to life in prison.

Ramon Pena-Cornelio entered his plea Friday in Circuit Court in the stabbing death of Ricardo Hernandez. Pena-Cornelio has a possibility of parole after 25 years.

When Woodburn police found Hernandez at an intersection, he had been stabbed more than 20 times. He later died at Salem Hospital.

The district attorney’s office says Pena-Cornelio is also from Woodburn. He fled after the stabbing. A U.S. marshals task force found him a month later in Sacramento, California.
