RACINE, WI (WTAQ) - A Racine man will spend the rest of his life in prison for stabbing his girlfriend 29 times while killing her. 

26-year-old Iryin Vaughn struck a plea deal that convicted him of first-degree intentional homicide. Several lesser charges were dropped. 

Circuit Judge Charles Constantine rejected a defense request to make Vaughn eligible for a supervised release after he serves 25 years. 

Vaughn pled no contest to killing 27-year-old Gwynevere Wright a week before Valentine's Day in 2012. After the murder, Vaughn took off with the couple's two-and-a-half year old daughter. 

A statewide Amber Alert was issued, and they were picked up the next day in Chicago. 

Authorities said Wright's 12-year-old son later found her bloody body. Judge Constantine cited that, saying he didn't want the boy to go to bed at night worrying that Vaughn might re-appear someday.
