A National City woman who was convicted of first-degree murder in the stabbing death of her ex-boyfriend in 2012 has been sentenced to 27 years to life in prison.
Miranda Mae Gallegos, 36, received 25 years to life for the slaying of Scott Eugene Humbert, 26, by Chula Vista Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sontag in March.
The murder occurred April 1, 2012.
Sontag imposed one year consecutively for the use of the knife in a homicide and another year for Gallegos’ prior conviction for receiving stolen property, said Deputy District Attorney Ted Minahan.
Gallegos received credit of nearly two years in jail which will be taken from the 27-year term. The jury convicted Gallegos on Jan. 22 after they deliberated approximately 10 hours over three days.
