RANCHO CUCAMONGA - An Upland woman was sentenced to seven years in state prison Wednesday for stabbing her husband to death with a sword.
Naomi Valdivia, 35, maintained she acted in self-defense when 36-year-old Jose Luis Gonzales was killed on April 26, 2008, in the 800 block of West Orchid Court.
Though Valdivia believed she was innocent, the mother of five opted to plead no contest to voluntary manslaughter last month to avoid a potentially longer prison sentence if convicted of murder, her sister said.
On Wednesday in West Valley Superior Court, Judge Shahla S. Sabet sentenced Valdivia to the seven years in state prison, said Deputy District Attorney Nancy Cooper.
I think she had a bad lawyer.

Actually my mother was beatin almost every other day during our lives with and by her innocent helpless husband, who was "stabbed to death". You all should be ashamed with your filthy comnents. She has had a gun pointed at her head by him, she has had drinks thrown at her. She was shoved to the wall and left unconcious, she has had her leg sprained by him, she was called filthy names by him in front of all her kids, he drove recklessly with my mom, me and my younger siblings in the car, he threatened my younger brother who was 7 years old at the time. She was beaten, blood on the walls and carpet, bruised face the night of the "murder". He came at her with the sword and she struggled to keep it from stabbing her. Ok it was an act of self defense, before you start blathering and making comments about situations that have nothing to do with you, make sure you have all your facts gathered to support your comments and thoughts.

<quoted text>fact iwas locked up with her but my case was dismissed. i had to fight cause they did make a mistake, and i won. but i was close where she did confine in me. i didnt say her son did it on his own i said helped her. maybe thats why she pleaed out cause she did want to put her family thur anymore grief. she has found peace. thats great. but she still has those nightmares. i pray for her and her family to be at peace and they will. For your info she not doing the whole 7years. anyways its not important to me. So this is the last time you will hear from me. Its just a sad story for anyone to repeat.

Be for you throw the first stone or try to remove the plank from another ones eye you must first remove the one from your own! Learn to not believe everything you hear for one can never know when they will suffer from a trama experience such as this.

<quoted text> Well by the sound of it you didn't know this women at all. Who the hell do you think you are judging her like your god. Hmm I wonder what you were in there for that you think your better then this women. You know ignorant people like you piss me the hell off. YOU need to get your damn facts straight cause you don't know a damn thing about her. Your putting your facts based on crap you heard. You don't know what she has been through and you will never know. Your talking about her killing her childs memories? Imagine what they had to live with. Their memories have been killed honey and let me tell you something, it sure as hell wasn't the mothers fault. Your trying to say she had her son try to hide the body? Tell me how that is even possible if this man was 240 lbs and her son was only 13. Ha lady you don't know a damn thing about what your talking about, if you asked me, I think your talking out of your a**. Have you even thought about what her older children had to go through, no you didn't lady. So I suggest the next time you want to try and put "facts" out there like that get the correct ones. And you obviously need stop doing research on this women cause your never going to find the truth. Take it from someone who was actually in the situation. And next time before you start judging remember you make mistakes too.
Fact: I was their neighbor, so sorry she only got 7 years. We all cried when we heard she killed her husband. He was a friendly man and always good with his kids unlike her.
He was not 240 lbs. Only 5'5 and 160 lbs. She was the abusive one, always yelling at her kids. She tried to start a couple fights with me. I never backed down. I told her she would have to put her hands on me first. She never did. She had a big mouth.She had 1 kid with him the other children were from their previous relationships. She took plea because she had no defense. When cops got to the scene she told them an intruder broke in and killed her husband. She waited for him to die before she called the cops, now does that sound like a wife saying she didn't do it and was protecting herself and the kids? I think not. Also when cops asked for his next of kin (mother) she told cops she was dead. Mother didn't know son was killed until months later she filed a missing person's report and then was told about the gruesome murder of her son. So sad this killer will be out soon and act like the victim. No justice in this case!
