Simon Bahta, Alexandria man sentenced in deaths of ex-girlfriend, daughter
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - An Alexandria man who cut the throats of his ex-girlfriend and their 3-year-old daughter last year has been sentenced to two life sentences in prison plus 20 years.
Judge Lisa Kemler sentenced 35-year-old Simon Bahta on Thursday for two counts of first-degree murder. An Alexandria Circuit Court jury found him guilty in March.
Bahta killed 27-year-old Seble G. Tessema and their daughter, Eden, on April 11, 2010 in a South Reynolds Street apartment.
Bahta's attorneys had said at trial that he was not guilty by reason of insanity.
