Suburban Phoenix man gets 16 years in prison for killing girlfriend

PHOENIX -- A man who pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the death of his live-in girlfriend has been sentenced to 16 years in prison.

A Maricopa County Superior Court spokesman said Douglas Ray George was sentenced Friday by Judge Robert Gottsfield.

George in February changed his plea to guilty in the death of 23-year-old Annovedwin Begay-Barakzai.

A passer-by found her beaten, stabbed and naked on a Tempe street on June 15.

Begay-Barakzai wasn't identified for weeks, and police even released a sketch of the woman hoping to learn her name.

A tip in the case led police to George. He had previously been arrested on suspicion of domestic violence assault on Begay-Barakzai, who declined to press charges.
