Man pleads guilty to first-degree murder in I-90 case

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. -

Attorney General Bob Ferguson announce Tuesday that a man accused of beating his girlfriend to death in front of their 3-year-old son has pleaded guilty.

Manuel Argomaniz-Camargo pleaded guilty to first-degree murder with a deadly weapon and possession of methamphetamine. He could go to prison for nearly 30 years.

In March, Argomaniz-Camargo attacked and killed his girlfriend on I-90 near Ritzville. A witness told KHQ that around 3 am on March 1, he pulled over because he saw a man and a child who appeared to be 2 or 3 years old, standing on the side of the road. He wanted to see if they were okay. When he tried to approach the man and the child, they took off on foot. He then walked over to what he assumes was their car, parked on the side of the road. The passenger window was smashed in and that's when he saw a woman's body, lying naked in the road with a screw driver in her heart. He immediately called police.

  Argomaniz-Camargo's sentencing hearing is set for October 4.
