Man sentenced to 75 years for 2017 stabbing, child abduction
BRIDGEPORT, Ct. (WJAC) —
A Connecticut man who was captured in Centre County and convicted of fatally stabbing his girlfriend, injuring her friend and then abducting his 6-year-old daughter last year was sentenced Tuesday.
Oscar Hernandez was sentenced to 75 years in prison.
He was convicted of the murder and other charges in October.
Authorities said Hernandez stabbed Nidia Gonzalez and her friend in the couple's Bridgeport apartment in February 2017 before taking off with his daughter.
The incident set off a three-state search that ended when he crashed in Centre County.
The Connecticut post reports Hernandez remained defiant at his sentencing and proclaimed his innocence, saying, "God knows I didn't do it."
