A central Florida man has been sentenced to life in prison for killing his girlfriend.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that 43-year-old Thomas Anthony Prins was sentenced Wednesday. He was convicted last week of first-degree murder.
Authorities say Prins had been boating with his girlfriend, 28-year-old Crystal Pifer, on the Halifax River in Port Orange last August when the two began to argue. Prins strangled Pifer and dumped her in the water, where her body was found the next day.
