Man sentenced to prison for 2004 Oak Park murder

A man convicted of a 2004 Oak Park murder has been sentenced to 25 years to life in prison, plus one year for use of a deadly weapon.

Ignacio Bulahan, 37, was convicted last month of first-degree in death of Thyotis Jackson, 22.

The murder was unsolved until 2010, when an individual came forward with information that assisted the Sacramento Police Department in linking the murder to Bulahan, according to a Sacramento County District Attorney's Office news release.

According to testimony at trial, Jackson was a cross-dressing prostitute whom Bulahan had propositioned outside a store on Broadway near First Avenue. A dispute arose when Jackson informed Bulahan that he was a man, and Bulahan slashed Jackson's throat during the fight.
