TUCSON, AZ (AP) -

A Tucson man is facing up to 10 years in prison after being convicted of second-degree murder in the stabbing of his girlfriend last year.

Jurors in Pima County Superior Court on Friday decided that 20-year-old Carlos Torres intentionally stabbed Ignacia Aranda to death, but did so without premeditation.

The Arizona Daily Star says Torres is scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 10.

Prosecutors had sought a first-degree murder conviction for Torres.

They say he killed the 17-year-old Aranda in the presence of their 18-month-old daughter on Aug. 8, 2011.

Prosecutors say Torres argued with Aranda because she went through his belongings while he was visiting another girlfriend.

An autopsy revealed Aranda had been stabbed in the face and neck between 19 and 25 times.
