    From September 2013:

    A 45-year-old El Paso County man who strangled a girlfriend and stowed her body under his mobile home was sentenced Tuesday to 48 years in prison.

    El Paso County District Judge Larry E. Schwartz imposed the maximum sentence available against Howard Lee York Jr. - calling the murder of Crysta Chisholm "unique in its horror." York had faced 16-48 years under a plea bargain...

    Danny Trujillo... told authorities that he watched York strangle Chisholm in an alcohol-induced rage after she rejected his sexual advances.
