Man gets life for fatal screwdriver stabbing

DENVER — A 19-year-old man convicted of first-degree murder for stabbing another man 64 times with a screwdriver has been sentenced to life in prison without parole.

The Denver Post reports ( ) Hector Alvarez-Martinon was sentenced Friday for the stabbing of 22-year-old Francisco Moran, who died at a hospital after police found him covered with blood at a Brighton mobile home park Nov. 22, 2012.

Prosecutors say Alvarez-Martinon, Moran and a man identified as Alex Hernandez were in a car driven by Hernandez when Alvarez-Martinon pulled out a screwdriver and began stabbing Moran, who was sitting in front of him.

Moran escaped from the vehicle and told police who attacked him when they found him covered in blood.

Hernandez also is charged with first-degree murder and is set to stand trial March 3.
