Wednesday will see some degree of resolution for a murder case in Garfield County. A judge in Glenwood Springs will decide how to sentence a man who pleaded guilty to killing his stepdaughter’s boyfriend. 

Fredy Cabrera will go before Judge Denise Lynch, after pleading guilty in August to second degree murder. Cabrera admitted to killing his stepdaughter’s boyfriend in a relationship dispute in the summer of 2013. Forty-one year old Cabrera has waived his right to a trial and could be sentenced up to nearly fifty years in prison. His attorneys are asking for a much shorter sentence, because of model behavior and the twenty year sentence recently given to convicted Aspen murderer, William Styler.
