Longoria Gets Life in Prison for Murdering GB Girl

GREAT BEND, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas man convicted of killing a 14-year-old cheerleader and burning her body at the asphalt plant where he worked will spend the rest of his life behind bars. Adam Longoria was sentenced Tuesday to life imprisonment without the chance of parole for the August 2010 death of Alicia DeBolt. Barton County Judge Hannelore Kitts had little leeway in deciding the punishment because a capital murder conviction in Kansas carries a mandatory sentence of at least life without parole. Prosecutors did not seek the death penalty. He also received 17 months for vehicle burglary and 7 months for theft. Those terms will be served concurrently with his life sentence.
