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 reports a jury of four men and two women took 2 and a 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.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP — A Volusia County man accused of killing his girlfriend and dumping her body is being held on a homicide charge in another county.
Orange County Jail records show 20-year-old Khambrel Hadley was being held Saturday on homicide and car theft charges. It’s not known if he has an attorney.
Hadley’s mother told Orlando police on Friday that he admitted to killing his girlfriend. Orlando police then contacted detectives in DeLand — about 40 miles away. Police say evidence found at Hadley’s home corroborated the information Hadley’s mother had given them.
Police say a body found in the area is believed to be the girlfriend. Hadley was arrested in Orlando where he’s also charged with resisting an officer without violence.
