A Lincoln man charged with beating his ex-girlfriend to death has been sentenced to 50 years to life in prison.
William Pereira was sentenced Tuesday in Lancaster County District.
He pleaded no contest in March to second-degree murder.
The judge in the case said Pereira killed 19-year-old Alissa Magoon in December 2010 in a fit of jealous rage, suspecting her of seeing another man.
Prosecutors say Pereira, a 26-year-old immigrant from El Salvador, beat Magoon on the head with a piece of wood until her skull was exposed.
