A Kent County judge today sentenced a man to life in prison for murdering a woman on the campus of Grand Rapids Community College.

The jury rejected Bivins' attorneys' attempt at an insanity defense.
Huntoon's mother spoke at the hearing, talking about her daughter's life -- and the man who took it from her.
