Man gets 45-years in prison for stabbing co-worker

18 March 2016, 10:02

Lafayette, Ind.  — A 44-year-old man convicted of fatally stabbing a co-worker and dumping his body along a highway in Lafayette in 2014 has been sentenced to 45 years in prison.

William Paz also was found guilty in February on a charge of obstruction of justice. Authorities said he killed 26-year-old Primitivo Flores, a co-worker at a restaurant.

The Lafayette Journal & Courier reports that Tippecanoe Superior Judge Randy Williams handed down the minimum sentence Thursday, explaining the punishment will adversely affect Paz's family in Central America, who were receiving $700 monthly from his job in Lafayette. Paz is from El Salvador.

During the four-day jury trial, Paz's defense attorneys argued that Paz's roommate was to blame.
