YULEE, Fla. -- A man convicted of killing a local father has been sentenced to life in prison.

James Turnage, 47, was found guilty of second-degree murder and grand theft auto for the 2010 death of Kirk Westfall. Prosecutors say Turnage killed Westfall and dumped his body in South Carolina. It was recovered two months after Westfall was last seen on property owned by Turnage's father.

Westfall was allowing Turnage to live in a camper outside his Yulee home. Turnage served a previous jail sentence for criminal mischief.
