17-year-old sentenced to nearly nine years in prison for stabbing death

YAKIMA, Wash. - A judge has sentenced a teen convicted of stabbing someone to death to eight and a half years behind bars for killing another teen when he was just 16-years-old.

Christian Salazar, 17, pleaded guilty Monday to second degree murder of 18-year-old Joshua Mungia back in July of 2016.

Witnesses say a fight broke out at an underage party in Sunnyside when Salazar stabbed Mungia five times.

Mungia died from his injuries later that night.

Salazar is sentenced to eight and a half years in prison and three years of community custody.
