LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — A 30-year-old Wyoming man has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for the beating and stabbing death of a 75-year-old woman in Laramie.
Trevor Lee Sanford pleaded guilty in November to first-degree murder in the March 29 death of Marilyn “Kay” Dlugosh.

Court records say Sanford was related to Dlugosh through marriage and had been staying at her house for about a week after spending time in jail for a high speed chase.
Investigators said fellow inmates heard Sanford threatening to kill Dlugosh for not taking his phone calls from jail.
An autopsy found she was beaten with a hammer and stabbed. Sanford was arrested on April 4 in Colorado with Dlugosh’s vehicle and bank cards.
