SIOUX CITY, Iowa – A woman has been sentenced to 50 years in prison for fatally stabbing another woman in April 2018 in Sioux City.
Melissa Camargo-Flores was sentenced Thursday in the death of 24-year-old Kenia Alvarez-Flores. Prosecutors say 22-year-old Camargo-Flores, of Dakota City, waited outside Alvarez-Flores’ house and stabbed the victim as she left for work.
Camargo-Flores was originally charged with first-degree murder but pleaded guilty in October to the lesser charge.
The reason for the stabbing wasn’t made clear Thursday but police said Camargo-Flores told them she had been involved with Alvarez-Flores’ boyfriend.
The two women were not related.
