OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A 43-year-old man convicted of first-degree murder in the beating death of his ex-girlfriend in Omaha has been sentenced to life in prison.

Anthony Burries was sentenced Tuesday in the May 2014 death of 38-year-old Tina Hoult. He had been found guilty last month.

Prosecutors say Burries entered Hoult’s apartment and beat her with a sharp object that he later threw off of a bridge.

Authorities also say Burries tried to destroy other evidence and fled to Missouri, where he was later arrested.
