 A Pawtucket man who admitted to killing his ex-girlfriend learns his fate.

30 year old Juan Diaz is sentenced to 60 years in prison and 40 to serve, although he gets credit for the 6 years he's already spent behind bars.

The judge is saying he destroyed a family when he shot and killed Myra Cruz back in 2008, leaving their child without a mother.

Diaz pled guilty to the crime in April in order to avoid a third trial in the case.
