BLOOMFIELD, Ind. (AP) — A judge has sentenced a man to 81 years in prison for murder and other counts in connection with the death of a southwestern Indiana teenager.

The Greene County Daily World and WTHI-TV report Randal Crosley of Jasonville, who will turn 26 on Friday, was sentenced Tuesday after pleading guilty last month to murder, conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to commit rape, criminal confinement and dealing a controlled substance.

He and 27-year-old Jordan Buskirk of Jasonville were charged in connection with the June slaying of 19-year-old Katelyn Wolfe of Linton. Buskirk is due to be sentenced March 18 after pleading guilty to murder, criminal confinement and the same two conspiracy counts.

Wolfe’s body was found June 10 in a lake outside her hometown about 75 miles southwest of Indianapolis.
