A 41 year old man of East Hampton pleaded guilty to Manslaughter in the First Degree in Suffolk County Criminal Court after stabbing 29 year old Blanca Soto in the back with a kitchen knife due to an altercation regarding their children’s visitation agreement. It was reported that the convict was intoxicated during the incident and Blanca Soto was pronounced dead at South Hampton Hospital located on 240 Meeting House Lane in South Hampton, NY due to the fatal stab wounds in her back. This tragic episode left 11 and 9 year old children without a mother and father, but they have been placed in the care of their uncle. He is expected to serve 22 years in prison; the maximum sentence for manslaughter is usually 25 years. Soto also has a previous charge of murder in the second degree but upon pleading to the Manslaughter charge his previous charge was dropped, but if convicted he could have faced 25 years to life.
