IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) — An eastern Idaho man has been sentenced to 25 years to life in prison in the beating death of a 62-year-old woman.

The Post Register reports Lisa Stukey's body was found in her Ammon home last July by two of her friends.

Jameion Hernandez told detectives he broke into Stukey's house a month prior. He said he hit Stukey with a baseball bat and stole items from her home.

Prosecutors say Hernandez held a grudge against Stukey for convincing her boyfriend to disinherit Hernandez's legal guardian.

Prosecutors say he bragged about the killing to family and friends.

District Judge Dane Watkins Jr. sentenced Hernandez to a minimum of 25 years in prison with an indeterminate life sentence on Monday. Hernandez will also have to pay a $5,000 compensatory fine.
