A man was sentenced to 26 years to life in prison in connection with the stabbing death of another man in a Stanton parking lot two years ago, the Orange County District Attorney’s Office announced Friday.

Daniel Perez Munoz, 23, was found guilty of the Jan. 2014 incident on Aug. 16, 2016.

Munoz was drinking with friends in an apartment parking lot when he walked to another parking lot and approached Phuong “Bob” Huynh, 52, who was walking to a store. Munoz then stabbed him several times in the neck and chest. Huynh took a few steps before he collapsed and died at the scene, officials said.

Munoz ran away from the area and was arrested by Garden Grove Police Department officers at his home about an hour after the incident.
