John Sandoval pleaded guilty to death of estranged wife
John Sandoval, whose first-degree murder conviction in the death of his estranged wife was overturned last year, led investigators to her remains in exchange for a plea deal.

The remains of Kristina “Tina” Tournai Sandoval have been exhumed from where he buried her beneath a grave in Sunset Memorial Garden cemetery where a World War II veteran was later interred. She was found inside a wrapping 21 inches below the bottom of the grave.

Sandoval on Friday pleaded guilty in Greeley District Court to second-degree murder. He will serve 25 years in prison and five years on parole. His sentence was dated back to August 2010 when he was convicted of first-degree murder.
