PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A Rhode Island man has been sentenced to life in prison plus 100 years for the 2012 murder of an escort and the assault and robbery of a woman he met online.

Thirty-five-year-old James Adams was convicted in July of second-degree murder and two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon and robbery.

Police say the Warwick resident attacked three women he met online in the summer of 2012. They say Adams killed one of the women, Mary Grier, and dumped her body behind a couch in the Cranston garage where he lived.

Adams was sentenced to 18 years in prison for rape in 2007, but was released in 2010.

Grier’s adoptive mother says she believes her daughter would be alive had Adams remained in prison.
