Fresno Bee:

"Saying he wanted to “man up” for a crime he committed four years ago, a Fresno man testified Thursday in graphic detail that he alone stabbed a registered sex offender 58 times and then strangled him inside a detached garage in southwest Fresno.

In 2014, David Barrera and Patricia Ann Perez were found guilty in Fresno Superior Court of first-degree murder in the killing of Lawrence Ballesteros. Because Barrera is a career criminal, he was sentenced to 80 years to life in prison. Perez was sentenced to 26 years to life in prison.

During the trial, Perez testified that she had no reason to kill Ballesteros. She said she and the victim were friends and she had offered him a place to live in the detached garage. She also testified she was drunk and passed out in her home when Ballesteros was killed."
