DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) — An Illinois man has been sentenced to 50 years in prison for killing his former girlfriend and leaving her body at the Dubuque Arboretum and Botanical Gardens.

KCRG-TV reports that 22-year-old Richard Forsythe of Galena, Illinois, was sentenced Tuesday in the February death of 20-year-old Jennifer Lopez.

Authorities say she was stabbed at least 15 times.

Forsythe pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and won’t be eligible for parole for 35 years. Relatives and friends of Lopez packed the Dubuque County courtroom, many wearing pink shirts reading “Justice for Jennifer Lopez.”
