PORT ANGELES, Wash. (AP) - A man who pleaded guilty to beating a woman to death with a car jack has been sentenced to 18 years in prison.

The Peninsula Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1MvGAry ) that Ari Lee King was sentenced Monday for killing Diane Cunningham in September 2014.

Clallam County Superior Court Judge Christopher Melly accepted the sentence recommended by the county prosecutor and King’s lawyer.

Tamra Wilson discovered her mother’s body in her blood-spattered residence. An autopsy showed that Cunningham died of blunt force trauma to the head.

Clallam County sheriff’s detectives said Cunningham had been dead for about nine days when Wilson and her boyfriend found the remains.

King apologized to Wilson as she concluded her remarks.
