A Belize native pleaded guilty Thursday to murdering his estranged wife in Westmont last year after visiting her home for a “family movie night” with their children, one of whom was celebrating her 5th birthday.

In return for the plea, Ian Alamilla will be sentenced to no more than 50 years in prison for the April 2010 strangulation of his wife Tara, 34.

“This is the beginning of the end,” the victim’s father, Alan Feldman of Oak Brook, said outside of court. “We’re getting some closure finally.”

Prosecutors said Alamilla walked into a Chicago police station shortly before 5:30 a.m. April 10, 2010, and told officers he’d had a domestic dispute with his wife. Within the hour, police discovered the victim’s body under a cover in a bed her basement. The couple’s children — ages 5, 6 and 11 — were found unharmed and sleeping in their beds.

The night before, prosecutors said, Alamilla had visited the victim’s home on the 300 block of Park Street for a “family movie night,” which coincided with their daughter’s birthday that weekend.

After watching a movie, the children went to bed while Alamilla and the victim stayed up to see a Jay Leno segment featuring an animal from Brookfield Zoo, where the victim worked as a school program coordinator for the Chicago Zoological Society. At some point, prosecutors said, Alamilla got into a dispute with the victim and choked her to death.
