NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - A judge in New Jersey has sentenced a Georgia man to 60 years in prison for killing an exotic dancer in 2011.

Johnny Jones III of Jonesboro, Georgia, was found guilty of murder, conspiracy and weapons offenses in the death of 33-year-old Denise Ramsey of Irvington.

She was last seen leaving the Dollhouse bar with some men on Dec. 3, 2011. Her stabbed body was found under a mattress in an East Orange lot in January 2012.

Jones was linked to DNA evidence found on Ramsey’s body. Another man pleaded guilty to second-degree reckless manslaughter.
