Sentencing for San Marcos man who admitted killing his roommate

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (CBS 8) - A San Marcos man who admitted to killing his 19-year-old roommate will be sentenced Monday.

Hector Vortes plead guilty to the fatal stabbing of Alfonso Gomez in August 2009 during a fight at their home.

Prosecutors say Cortes stabbed Gomez in the heart because he was angry about Gomez asking his girlfriend to dance during a party.

Cortez tried to flee to Mexico but was arrested at the San Ysidro port of entry.

He faces 16 years to life in prison.
