Kevin Christopher Jones, 27, was sentenced to life in prison Thursday afternoon for the 2010 death of his ex-girlfriend. Jones was convicted last month on a charge of second-degree murder.

Jones killed Latoya Jones, 26, in December 2010. The two were at Latoya’s home when Jones stabbed her. After the stabbing, Jones forced his injured ex-girlfriend to drive him around town.

While riding in the car, Jones reached over to the driver’s side and strangled Latoya. Jones then jumped out of the moving car and watched his ex-girlfriend drive into a telephone pole.

The Medical Examiner determined Latoya’s death was due to strangulation.
