(Murder suspect accepts a plea deal)…The deal means he could spend the rest of his life behind bars.
Jose Cisneros had been arrested in November 2012 for the brutal murder of his mother Sylvia Cisneros and the attempted murder of his sister Melissa. Investigators say he was on drugs at the time. The deal accepted by the suspect was to drop the attempted murder charge in exchange of a guilty plea for the first-degree murder charge. Thursday Cisneros was sentenced to 25 years to life in state prison. The murder took place at Sylvia Cisneros’s Calexico home. She was a very popular nurse in the Valley, working at El Centro Regional Medical Center at the time of her death.
