DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A central Florida man will spend the rest of his life behind bars for beating and strangling his girlfriend.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal (https://bit.ly/1YGuT9p ) reports a jury of four men and two women took two and one-half hours to find 23-year-old Khambrel Hadley guilty of first-degree murder for killing 19-year-old Alyssa Oakes. She died in July 2013.

Prosecutors say that after Hadley killed her, he put her body in the pantry and turned down the air conditioner until he could steal a friend’s car to dump her body.

Circuit Judge Terence Perkins sentenced Hadley to the mandatory life sentence. He also got five years on the car theft.
