POMONA, Calif. (AP) — A Los Angeles County man has been sentenced to 25 years to life for killing his wife, whose body was left in a trunk at a casino parking lot.

A district attorney's statement says 62-year-old Tomas (Toh-MAHS') Rodriguez Infante received the maximum sentence Tuesday after his conviction last month for first-degree murder.

Prosecutors say Infante stabbed and beat his wife, Charita Tolentino, at their West Covina home in January of last year, then left her body in the trunk of her car in the Hawaiian Gardens Casino parking lot.

Authorities say Infante's wife vanished a day after Infante's lover broke off their affair after learning he was married.

Infante's son testified at trial that his father had confessed to the killing.
