FAIRFIELD — A Vacaville man who murdered his longtime girlfriend and mother of two of their children was sentenced Wednesday to 40 years to life in prison.

During his jury trial earlier this year, Sidney Wilson, 34, admitted shooting Victoria Corral, 33, after luring her into the garage of her Cambridge Drive home one night in September 2011. The shooting came after the pair argued earlier in the evening about their children.

A jury found Wilson guilty in February of second-degree murder.

One of Corral’s children testified that she walked into the garage and witnessed Wilson shoot her mother. There were four children in the home at the time of the shooting.

The shooting spurred a 40-minute standoff between Wilson and Vacaville police that included the terrified children fleeing the home before Wilson surrendered.

There were five previous domestic violence incidents between Wilson and Corral before the fatal encounter. During Wilson’s trial, prosecutor Terry Ray said the past domestic violence included Wilson slamming Corral against the floor and walls of her home and choking her until she could not breathe.
