Hesperia man sentenced to 26 years for murdering girlfriend

HESPERIA, Calif. (VVNG.com) — Timothy Aguilar Andrade, 32, of Hesperia, was sentenced to 26 years to life for fatally stabbing his girlfriend.

On Aug. 23, 2015, Andrade killed Brandi Carrasco, 35, by stabbing her in the neck inside a bedroom of a house located in the 1900 block of Richard Street where they were both staying, prosecutors said.

Deputy District Attorney Fernanda Barreto said Andrade was found guilty last month of one count of first-degree murder with a knife-use allegation.

According to a Los Angeles Times news article, during his testimony, Andrade claimed God had told him to make Carrasco right with God because she was impure of drug use and kept making references of sending her home.
