GRAND FORKS - The man who stabbed another man to death and who was the final defendant in a string of people charged in a Grand Forks murder case was sentenced to 30 years in prison Wednesday.
Joe Ramon Saucedo, 23, pleaded guilty to murder, a class AA felony, and conspiracy to commit burglary, a class B felony, in North Dakota district court in Grand Forks.
The victim, Ruben Cisneros Jr., was stabbed to death at his rural home several miles northwest of Grand Forks in November 2013 after Saucedo and four others went to the home to retrieve Cisneros’ ex-girlfriend’s belongings.
“I am sorry for the harm I have caused their family,” Saucedo said before turning around to try to personally address Cisneros’ family members, who were not present.
