Jesse Bernard Winnick was sentenced by Van Nuys Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Lippitt to 15 years to life in prison for the 2007 murder of Hadas Winnick, said Deputy Dist. Atty. Edward Nison.

Hadas Winnick was found dead with multiple stab wounds at 3821 Declaration Avenue in Calabasas. 

Her son called his sister and warned her not to come home because he had just killed their mother, said sheriff's Lt. Gil Carrillo.

The daughter went to the house and found Winnick dead.
