(Scroll down for video) A man became mad when he learned that his 13-year-old sister was pregnant.
The brother decided to protect the honor of his family by killing 24-year-old Antonio Hernandez-Ledezma, who he believed, got his teenage sister pregnant.
21-year-old Yoset Dominguez-Serrano of Yakima County, Washington, lured Hernandez-Ledezma to a meeting by pretending to be interested in buying his car.
The two got into a fight, which ended when Dominguez-Serrano killed the 24-year-old. His decomposed body was found months later by hikers.
Defense attorney Aaron Dalan said that in his mind, Dominguez-Serrano believed that he was acting to protect the honor of his family.
Dominguez-Serrano pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and he was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
The court heard that after the birth of the baby, DNA proved that Hernandez-Ledezma did not the father to baby with the 13-year-old girl.
At sentencing, judge Richard Bartheld told Dominguez-Serrano “You honored no one. You dishonored your family by committing a heinous crime.”
Dominguez-Serrano is facing deportation to Mexico, after completing his 20 year sentence.
