PHOENIX (AP) - A Tempe man already serving life in prison for the 2010 shooting death of his ex-girlfriend has been sentenced to a consecutive life term for a cold case homicide.

The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office says 55-year-old Wade Eugene Bradford was sentenced Friday for the murder of Eleanor Su Pigon.

Prosecutors say Pigon had been missing since June 2006. Her bound and decomposed remains were discovered in 2014 in a barrel inside a Goodyear storage unit rented to Bradford.

At the time of the discovery, Bradford was awaiting trial for a 2010 killing. He was subsequently indicted for Pigon’s kidnapping and murder.

Last July, Bradford was sentenced for the killing of Natalie Allan.

Prosecutors say Bradford fatally shot Allan in the head as she was getting her belongings from his home.
