Man sentenced to 40 years in prison for stabbing death at Federal Heights carwash

A 40-year-old man was sentenced to 40 years in prison for a stabbing death at a Federal Heights carwash.

Antonio DeHerrera was sentenced Friday for second-degree murder in the death of 41-year-old Angel Joseph Casares Jr., according to the Adams County district attorney’s office.

On Nov. 12, 2018, police officers found Casares stabbed and lying on pavement at the Precision Car Wash, 8411 Huron St., according to a news release. DeHerrera, who fled the scene, was arrested at his residence.

The two men, who knew each other, were involved in a long domestic dispute, prosecutors said. An argument led to a knife attack. Casares was stabbed eight times, including a fatal wound to his neck, the release said.

DeHerrera pleaded guilty on Sept. 13 to a charge of second-degree murder. Adams County District Judge Tomee Crespin noted that this was DeHerrera’s third felony conviction as she imposed the 40-year sentence.
