ALHAMBRA (CNS) – A Los Angeles man who was convicted of murdering his girlfriend and then setting her Pasadena apartment on fire in an attempt to destroy evidence was sentenced today to 36 years to life in state prison.
Corey Lavelle Green, who was found guilty Oct. 21 of second-degree murder, arson of an inhabited structure and first-degree residential burglary, was sentenced by Alhambra Superior Court Judge Stan Blumenfeld.
Maria Donnelly’s body was discovered in an apartment unit on Sept. 30, 2011, after firefighters were called to a fire at an apartment building at 59 S. Meridith Ave. Investigators determined that the 27-year-old woman had been beaten to death before the blaze was set.
Green was arrested in December 2011 by Pasadena police.
