Nampa Woman Sentenced for Stabbing Boyfriend

Benito Baeza

CALDWELL, Idaho (KTVB) — A Nampa woman who stabbed her boyfriend to death in October has been sentenced to 25 years in prison. Susana Quijano, 34, pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and use of a deadly weapon in March. She will be eligible for parole after spending 12 years behind bars, Judge Juneal Kerrick ruled Tuesday. Police tied Quijano to the crime last year after finding Santiago Delgado Pineda dead from a single stab wound to the chest in his Nampa home. The dead man’s neighbors told investigators they had seen a woman leaving Pineda’s home in a green pickup truck that matched the description of one owned by Quijano.

She was arrested the next day. Quijano admitted killing the man, telling detectives she was tired of him “messing with her.” Police say she had gotten a restraining order for Pineda for domestic violence before the killing. Quijano told a judge at an Oct. 15 hearing that she didn’t have a violent past.
