A New York City woman was sentenced Tuesday to 23 years in prison for killing her aunt with a meat cleaver and raping a teenage relative in 2017, the acting Queens District Attorney said in a statement.
Elizabeth Sanchez, 32, who is also known as Digna Sanchez-Ortiz, pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter and second-degree rape June 20.
She was accused of fatally attacking her aunt, Maria Palaguachi, 50, in the home they shared on March 16, 2017, with a meat cleaver, and of having sex with the teenage male victim between Dec. 30, 2016, and January 2017, and again in March of that year, Acting Queens District Attorney John M. Ryan said.
Sanchez was sentenced to 23 years for the slaying and 2 1/2 to seven years for the rape conviction, but the sentences will run concurrently, the acting district attorney said. It will be followed by five years of post-release supervision.
