EASTON, Pa. -

A man who was on the lam for nearly 20 years has admitted to a murder in Bethlehem.

Francisco Miranda pleaded guilty Friday to third degree homicide. He was sentenced to 10 to 20 years in prison.

Miranda killed 30-year-old Jorge Velasquez in Bethlehem in 1994.

Miranda was on the run for years until he was arrested in the Dominican Republic in November.
