An argument captured on a home camera ended tragically when Victor strangled Wendy following accusations of infidelity and amid his struggle with drug addiction.

The upcoming sentencing aims to deliver justice for Wendy Ayllon, while State’s Attorney Mosser highlighted the ongoing trauma faced by the children, thanking local detectives and police for their efforts in resolving the case.
