A man who admitted to being high on methamphetamine when he stabbed his ex-girlfriend up to 30 times as she was on her hands and knees saying “I love you,” and then dismembering her body and disposing of her remains in a California orchard, was sentenced to 55 years to life in prison.

Cameron Wright, 22, was sentenced Wednesday in the January killing of Samantha Sharp, 24, after entering a guilty plea on May 18, authorities said.

NBC Fresno affiliate KSEE was in the courtroom as family members gave gut-wrenching testimony.

“She was so in love with you, and eventually, you stole her life from her,” said her cousin Jennifer Lewing, through tears. “You stole her from her family, and you stole her from her beautiful children.”
