KENT, Wash. (AP) - A Burien man has pleaded guilty to stabbing his ex-wife to death last year at a park-and-ride in Kent.

The Seattle Times reports (https://bit.ly/1HxFZ7C ) that Telesforo Hernandez-Roa entered the guilty plea to a second-degree murder charge this week.

King County prosecutors say Hernandez-Roa told police that his ex-wife, Ruth Castillo-Yanez, had been cheating on him with another man. Hernandez-Roa claimed her new lover had sent him nude photos of her.

Court records show that the two had been divorced for about seven months at the time of the July 2014 slaying.

Castillo-Yanez’s body was found inside a red Nissan Pathfinder at the West Hill Park and Ride.

Hernandez-Roa is scheduled to be sentenced on Dec. 18.
