Hayden Man Convicted of Killing His Ex-Wife

(CORRECTION:) The original version of this story said Ortega was sentenced to 46 years. This was incorrect. Ortega was found guilty but not sentenced. Sentencing will be on June 2. I apologize for the mistake.--Roland

A Hayden man has been convicted of killing his ex-wife with a knife.

The Gila County Attorney’s Office says 38 year old Guillermo Ortego III was found guilty of second degree murder, attempted second degree murder and aggravated assault. 

Prosecutors say Ortega attacked his ex-wife in her home on April 28, 2013. She suffered fatal injuries to her neck. Her brother heard the struggle and came to her aid and was wounded in the chest and neck with the same knife.

Ortega will be sentenced on June 2 in Globe.
