LOS ANGELES (AP) — A 55-year-old man pleaded guilty and was immediately sentenced to 75 years to life in prison for the stabbing death of his estranged wife as she worked at a Southern California supermarket.

Prosecutors say Kelvin Melvin Green entered the plea to one count of murder Wednesday and was sentenced immediately. He had two prior strikes on his record.

The district attorney's office says Green's wife 46-year-old Christina Talley was working the check-out counter at Albertsons in Santa Monica in 2011 when Green, wearing a hood, came in and beat and stabbed her in the head and torso. He ran from the store and she later died.

Prosecutors say Talley had previously told him she was going to permanently end their relationship and got a restraining order.
