The man convicted after a body was found burning on the side of a road in Caledonia will serve 25 years to life behind bars.
Aykut Ozkaynak was sentenced in court on Thursday in the case. He was arrested along with Mary Neverett for the murder of their roommate 64-year-old Patrice Miller.
Investigators said Miller was killed at her apartment in Gates on July 4, 2016. After the murder, investigators said Ozkaynak and Neverett took the body to Caledonia and set it on fire along a road.
In September, Neverett accepted a plea deal in the case.
