DAYTONA BEACH (CBSMiami/AP) — A man who killed his girlfriend and then stuffed her body in a pantry until he could get rid of it has been sentenced to life in prison.

It took a four men and two women jury in Daytona Beach about two-and-a-half hours to find Khambrel Hadley, 23, guilty of first-degree murder for death of 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.
