A Tujunga killer was sentenced Wednesday to 21 years and four months in state prison for stabbing his wife to death at their home.

Henrik Avetyan, 56, pleaded no contest July 21 to voluntary manslaughter for the May 7, 2015, killing of his wife.

After stabbing 50-year-old Larisa Sarkisyan, Avetyan injured himself with the knife before a family member walked in and discovered the carnage, according to prosecutors.

Avetyan has remained jailed since then.
