Kyllan Ellis will wait 12 years for a chance at parole after being sentenced to life in prison Friday for the 2012 death of Simone Sanderson.

He was found guilty of second-degree murder in May. The conviction carries a life sentence.

Victim impact statements from Sanderson's grandparents and father were delivered in court Friday.

"I lost my joy, my pleasure in life when I lost Simone," wrote Betty Ann Sanderson, Simone's grandmother.

Both grandparents say they've spent days at the site of her murder to pray and cry.
