A Littlerock woman was sentenced today to 26 years to life in state prison for killing her boyfriend in 2015 by shooting him in the head six times, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

On June 5, a jury found Ana Rosenda Mancio, aka Ana Delgado, 43, guilty of first-degree murder.

Case MA069145 was tried by Deputy District Attorneys Scott Yang and David Delgado.

The defendant shot and killed Miguel Romero, 46, while he delivered rolls of corn for animals in Littlerock on April 28, 2015, the prosecutors said. After the killing, Mancio fled the country through Mexico to Guatemala by claiming a family emergency, according to evidence presented in court.

The defendant returned to the United States six months later through Florida, the prosecutors added. The criminal complaint was filed for warrant on July 2016 and Mancio was arrested in Florida a year later when she attempted to buy guns, according to court testimony.

The case was investigated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
