Admitted Wife-Killer Given 27 Years in Prison

The Eatontown husband who confessed to killing his estranged wife in 2011, burying her remains in a shallow grave near the Parkway in Aberdeen, and leaving two sons motherless, can expect to spend up to 27 years behind bars.

Oscar Prior-Ramirez, 34, was sentenced today in Freehold for his guilty plea that was bargained down from first-degree murder to first-degree aggravated manslaughter, according to the office of acting Monmouth County Prosecutor Chris Grammiccioni.

The plea agreement, reached in November 2013, was struck with the consent of the victim’s family, authorities noted.

Viridiana Beltran-Gomez, 26 at the time of her death, was last seen leaving her job at the Siena Grill in Red Bank on the night of May 12, 2011.

Her remains were found on June 25, near Parkway mile marker 119, and later identified.

Prior-Ramirez has been in custody since that date, in lieu of bail set at $1,500,000. He was indicted for murder in March 2012.
