Man sentenced in 2015 killing of girlfriend in Burbank

A 32-year-old Hesperia man who stabbed his girlfriend to death inside a Burbank home more than three years ago was sentenced this week to 26 years to life in prison, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office.

Timothy Aguilar Andrade was convicted by a jury last month of first-degree murder with the special allegation that he used a knife, prosecutors said.

The trial lasted six days and a jury deliberated for about 3 and a half hours before deciding on a verdict, a spokeswoman for the district attorney's office said.

On Aug. 23, 2015, Andrade was in a bedroom with his girlfriend, 35-year-old Brandi Carrasco, when he stabbed her in the neck.

The two were staying at the home, in the 1900 block of Richard Street, with other acquaintances.
