STAMFORD, Conn. -- A 34-year-old former Norwalk man pleaded guilty to murder on Wednesday in connection with the stabbing death of a cab driver from Bridgeport, according to the Stamford Advocate.

Ramiro Arcos-Garcia admitted to stabbing Jackson Pierre-Louis, a 51-year-old taxi driver with Norwalk Yellow Cab, in Norwalk on Dec. 8, 2014, according to the Advocate.

Under the plea deal, Arcos-Garcia will be sentenced later this summer to 30 years in prison, the Advocate said.

Prosecutor Paul Ferencek said Arco-Garcia stabbed the taxi driver twice in the stomach and once in the chest and slashed the right side of his throat, according to the Advocate.

At the time of Arcos-Garcia's arrest just days after the stabbing death, police said the men were friends and that the attack occurred while the 34-year-old sat in the front passenger seat of Pierre-Louis' cab.

Pierre-Louis, a married father of four, had been employed with the taxi company for about six months at the time of his death.
