A Houston man pleaded guilty today to murdering his wife more than two years ago. Ruy Perez and his wife, 26-year-old Laela Perez, were separated at the time. One night back in November 2007, Perez shot Laela multiple times, killing her as she sat in her SUV in southwest Houston.

Laela was a mother of two young children. Her husband faces up to 99 years in prison. Sentencing happens in June.
