A 32-year-old man was sentenced Monday to 25 years to life in prison for killing the college student he was secretly dating, dismembering her body and hiding it at his house.
Terrance Evans maintains his innocence in the death of April Gregory, the girl who lived next door to him and worked with him at a McDonald's restaurant.
Moments before the judge sentenced Evans, the victim's father told Evans that he hoped "you have fun in prison and end up like Jeffrey Dahmer," a serial killer who confessed to killing, dismembering and in some cases cannibalizing 17 young men and boys. He was bludgeoned to death by another inmate in state prison in November 1994.
Evans' attorney argued during a trial that Miss Gregory's death was accidental and that Evans panicked and tried to hide her body.
Miss Gregory was 18 when she disappeared after having just completed her freshman year at Syracuse University's College for Human Development. Her remains were found last November in Evans' home.
