RITZVILLE – A Chicago man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for murdering his girlfriend on Interstate 90 in Eastern Washington in front of their 3-year-old son.

Manuel Argomaniz-Camargo, 34, was sentenced after previously pleading guilty to first-degree murder and possession of methamphetamine, according to the Columbia Basin Herald.

Argomaniz-Camargo admitted to bludgeoning Ana Montelongo Garcia with a hammer and stabbing her with a screwdriver on I-90 near Ritzville in March 2016.

According to court documents, Argomaniz-Camargo, Garcia and their young son left the Chicago area on a cross-country trip to Washington. Argomaniz-Camargo admitted to investigators that he ingested meth and cocaine to help him stay awake to drive. When they were near Ritzville, Argomaniz-Camargo forced Garcia out of the car, accused her of witchcraft and struck her with a hammer.
