SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif. (AP) - A Southern California man will spend 50 years to life in prison for killing a former co-worker, entombing the body in concrete and hiding it under a business.

Forty-nine-year-old Juan Galvez of Santa Fe Springs was sentenced Monday for first-degree murder.

Prosecutors say Galvez used a shotgun to kill 38-year-old Guillermo Diaz three years ago at a skylight manufacturing business in Santa Fe Springs.

Authorities say both had worked there but Galvez grew resentful of Diaz after being fired.

To hide the body, Galvez encased it in concrete and buried in under a makeshift shower he built at an auto repair business where he was working in the same industrial park.
