Man Pleads Guilty to Stabbing Girlfriend and Hiding Her Body in Trunk of Car

Prosecutors say a New York City man who stabbed his girlfriend to death and then hid her bloody body in the trunk of her car has pleaded guilty to manslaughter.

Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown said Thursday that Luis Zambrano could face around 25 years in prison when he's sentenced on April 19.

Angie Escobar's body was found Sept. 10 in the abandoned car in Whitestone, Queens. The medical examiner determined she had died about four days earlier.

The indictment said the 28-year-old mother of two was repeatedly stabbed with scissors while trying to end her relationship with the defendant.

Zambrano was arrested in Daleville, Virginia, on Sept. 18.
