Thomas Lee Crowder broke into a
first-floor apartment in the Raleigh
Court area and killed an 87-year old
woman.

That was in 1987.

The case went un-solved until
late last year when a new D-N-A sample
from Crowder produced a "cold hit."

He was charged with killing
Bertha Sommardahl.

He did not contest the charge.

Yesterday the judge decided there
was only one appropriate sentence given
these facts, and that was LIFE.
