BRENTWOOD — Jackson Mwangi, 29, was sentenced to 40 years to life in prison at about 3 p.m. today for the murder of his estranged girlfriend, Randi Huntley of Danville, June 1, 2010.
In a plea deal, Mwangi pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in exchange for that sentence. He faced a first-degree murder charge, which carries a potential sentence of life in prison.
Mwangi had moved out of the home he shared with Huntley and their 4-year-old son earlier in the spring of 2010.
He took their young son with him on a shopping trip to buy a BB gun, hunting knife and zip ties. The child was present when Mwangi stabbed Huntley, then bludgeoned her with a sledgehammer after she fought back, according to court documents.

Tearful testimony in Burlington Thursday-- as the state's star witness took the stand at the trial for the Essex shooting rampage suspect.
Christopher Williams' ex-girlfriend testified about her relationship with the man who went gunning for her when it ended, but wound up killing two people including her mother.
"I had tried to call my mom, my sister and my mom's neighbor," Andrea Lambesis testified.
"And were you able to reach any of them?" asked Chittenden Deputy Prosecutor Justin Jiron.
"No," Lambesis said, crying.
Andrea Lambesis fought back tears as she told the jury how she desperately tried to reach her mother fearing her ex-boyfriend Christopher Williams had harmed her.
Lambesis-- a teacher-- made the call from the Essex Elementary School as it was in a lock down due to a report of a gunman in the building.
She feared the gunman was Williams and that he was on a rampage because she had ended their troubled 2 1/2 year relationship the night before and he was angry again.

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa -- The prosecution's case in a Pottawattamie County murder trial became too much for the victim's mother to bear Friday morning, and she ran from the courtroom in tears.
Stan Tribble faces a first-degree murder charge in the death of his wife, Tracy Gostomski-Tribble.
Mary Gostomski ran from the courtroom as prosecutors called police to the stand to talk about the day they found a body in the river.
Earlier, the victim's father, John Gostomski, said Friday morning in court that he objected to the marriage between Tribble and his daughter. He said Tribble had gotten another woman pregnant a year before.
"I told Stan to his face, if he's so set on marrying someone, why not marry the mother of his daughter and not my daughter? Stan said, 'I love Tracy so much.' I told Tracy about my objection to their marriage, talked to Tracy about it, primarily because he just got another woman pregnant, now he wanted to marry my daughter. She didn't take it well. We didn't communicate for a while, then we made up," Gostomski testified.
He said she had severe blunt-force trauma to her head, and explained how serious those injuries were.
"If she had survived and gone to a hospital, she would have needed major reconstructive surgery and probably would have resulted in disfigurement," Klein said.
Klein said the body had bruises on the legs and torso. He said two teeth were missing from her upper jaw.
It was a very emotional morning as the prosecution called their witnesses to the stand Friday at 8:30 a.m. Testimony began with Jennifer Doyle, Ulmer's best friend. She said Ulmer was the best friend a person could ask for and trusted everyone to do the right thing
has nothing to do with me being a liberal (which i'm not, we've had this conversation before), if you have a point you've made it
the next time i see a post about a bout a black man killing someone i hope it's you or pamela in the story
BTW, do you fantasize about murdering all political conservatives and becoming a dictator of the USA like Stalin was for the USSR?
This troll's a one-trick pony, with clearly nothing else to offer ... everyone who doesn't share his racist views is a "liberal" ... nothing to see here ... moving on
"He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it."
Gracie may rule and I happen to agree with her here, still a child of 13 should not be on this system interacting with adults and her father is not doing his due diligence in monitoring her internet usage in my opinion.
