A man found guilty of murdering a Honolulu woman back in 1989 was sentenced Wednesday to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
In February, Gerald Austin was found guilty murdering 81-year-old Edith Skinner. Austin was 29 at the time. He was 54 on the date of the verdict.
His DNA was found inside Skinner, but Austin told jurors he didn't do it. Instead he claimed just before she was murdered, the two had consensual sex after briefly meeting in the lobby of Skinner's building.
