Life, no parole for man in first-degree murder

PONTIAC (AP) -- A judge has issued the mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole to a man convicted of raping and strangling a 32-year-old mother of three, then dumping her body in a southeastern Michigan lake.

A boy fishing in Terry Lake in Pontiac on May 26 found the body of Rosaline Lee. The Detroit Free Press says police used DNA evidence to link 42-year-old Bobby L Taylor to the killing.

Oakland County Circuit Judge Daniel O'Brien on Monday sentenced Taylor for first-degree murder.

Assistant Prosecutor Paul Walton says Taylor saw Lee in her van in the early morning when she parked in downtown Pontiac to pick up child support from the father of her youngest child.
