A 24-year-old Cornwall man was slapped with a sentence of life in prison Friday for the murder of a Martintown resident three years ago.

George Flaro, 70, was found dead in his home in June 2007 by his daughter and her husband.

Several members of his family broke down in court while reading their victim impact statements.

Jeremy Legare, the man convicted of his murder, will have no chance of parole for over 25 years.
