Man gets 55 years in prison for killing son and stabbing boy's mother

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A Madison area man has received what could be a life prison sentence for killing his two-year-old son with an SUV and stabbing his mother.

Dane County Circuit Judge Ellen Berz handed down a 55 year prison term Thursday to 32-year-old Jesus Castillo-Dimas. If he's still alive when his sentence ends, he could face deportation, as he's still in custody on a federal immigration hold.

Authorities said Castillo-Dimas ran over his 2-year-old son Yandel Castillo-Castillo in Fitchburg in the summer of 2012 -- and he then tried killing the boy's mother and her new boyfriend.

Judge Berz said the mother feared that Castillo-Dimas would get out of prison one day and in her words, "finish what he started and kill me."

The defendant struck a plea in April that convicted him of reckless homicide, attempted homicide, and a reduced charge of reckless endangerment.
