A Florida man will spend his life in prison for beating a woman to death and nearly killing her roommate.
Christopher Powell, 32, of Panama City, was sentenced Wednesday after jurors found him guilty of first-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder.
Authorities say Powell, his wife, Tiffany Powell, and two others had been engaged in a drug binge with 59-year-old Carla Maria Hight and 43-year-old Marie Rachel Foxworthy at the women's home in February 2016.
Prosecutors say the party turned violent when the Powells attacked Foxworthy over a missing set of truck keys.
Hight was killed after she demanded the others take Foxworthy to a hospital, and Foxworthy managed to get away.
Tiffany Powell is awaiting trial.
The other man and woman with them testified against Powell and are awaiting sentencing.
