Man gets life in 1983 rape-slaying of Eastern Michigan student
(wgvu) - ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - An imprisoned sex offender will serve a
life sentence without parole in the 1983 rape and murder of an
Eastern Michigan University student.
Jimmy Green was convicted of attacking and stabbing 26-year-old
Laura McBride, a nutrition student and Air Force veteran who was
walking to class.
McBride's brother, William, told a Washtenaw County judge
Tuesday that Green's conviction marked a closure for the family. He
urged Green to think about what he did.
But Green maintained his innocence to the end. He told the court
the McBrides "don't have closure" because he didn't kill Laura.
Prosecutors say DNA in the case matched Green's.
Green already is serving a life sentence for a 1995 rape.
