COLUMBIA, South Carolina — A 28-year-old man has been sentenced to 36 years in prison for stabbing his girlfriend to death, putting her body into a plastic container and taking her to the parking lot of a McDonald's restaurant.
The State newspaper reports (http://bit.ly/1HCcSQL ) that Faasiu Toese was sentenced Tuesday in Richland County.
Toese was arrested in 2013. He had called police himself, telling officers to look in the backseat of his car, where his girlfriend's body was in a plastic storage container.
Deputies say 25-year-old Temukisa Enele from Pago Pago, American Samoa, died after she was stabbed several times. Investigators have sayd they were not sure why Toese drove to the McDonald's before calling police.
