Anthony Pimentel via East Bay Regional Park District Police

A 22-year-old California man who allegedly admitted to cops that he “snapped” and watched his 18-year-old ex-girlfriend die may spend the rest of his life behind bars after entering a no contest plea in the victim’s strangulation death. Judge Thomas Nixon handed down a sentence of 15 years to life in prison to Anthony Pimentel for the 2018 slaying of Mariah Alyce Davis, court records reviewed by Law&Crime show.

Appearing in Alameda Superior Court on Jan. 7, Pimentel pleaded no contest to one count of second-degree murder in Davis’ death. Pimentel in 2018 and 2019 had entered pleas of not guilty.

According to a report from The Mercury News, Davis was reported missing on Sept. 26, 2018. When police questioned a then-19-year-old Pimentel about her whereabouts, he reportedly told investigators that he had not seen her.

But four days after Davis was reported missing, cops say the suspect was wracked with guilt and walked into the San Leandro police station, where he turned himself in and allegedly confessed.

“I’m trying to confess to something, I need y’all to go find her,” he reportedly said upon entering the station. “I murdered my girlfriend.”
