PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) — A man has been sentenced to life in prison for killing his girlfriend, who was found dead in her Pensacola Beach condo in 2011.
An Escambia County judge sentenced 47-year-old Charles Douglas Boshell on Thursday. He pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in October.
Boshell was charged in 52-year-old Caroline Marbury-Smart's death in August 2011. Boshell had been living with Marbury-Smart, and deputies found her body the previous month after neighbors complained of a stench.
The Pensacola News Journal reports that Boshell was arrested in Ocean Springs, Miss. for warrants out of Louisiana. At the time of the arrest, Boshell was driving the Marbury-Smart's 2003 Cadillac.
