A 20-year-old man was sentenced to life in prison without parole, plus 100 years, for murdering a Shaker Heights woman in her apartment.

Police say Hammons killed 60-year-old Anderson-Norfus in her apartment on May 4, 2012.

Co-workers went to Anderson-Norfus' apartment after the make-up artist failed to show up for work at Saks at Beachwood Mall. Management let the co-workers inside the apartment where they discovered her body.

The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner says she was strangled.
