On May 24, 2020, witnesses saw Milowski jump out of a moving vehicle in the 3800 block of Krie Trail.

Milowski suffered multiple stab wounds and died at the scene.

Witnesses gave deputies the description of the car, which deputies found crashed and abandoned near the intersection of Salty Marsh and Kennebec Way.

Deputies set up a perimeter and eventually found Gonzales hiding at a house in the 9600 block of Acadian Drive.

Milowski was a newly sworn corrections officer and mother of three. Her parents previously told KSAT 12 that Gonzales had a history of abusing Milowski.

In court on Wednesday, Gonzales pleaded guilty and per a plea deal was sentenced to 28 years in prison.

He must serve half before he is eligible for parole.
