TAVARES, Fla. (AP) - A central Florida teen has been sentenced to life in prison for a fatal robbery.
A Lake County judge sentenced Ryan Ray on Friday. A jury found him guilty in July of first-degree murder.
Authorities say then-16-year-old Ray lured 39-year-old Jamin Monte Coyle from Lancaster, Ky., to central Florida in 2010. The Orlando Sentinel (http://thesent.nl/VIudPd ) reports that Ray had posed online as a 19-year-old interested in having sex with Coyle and then robbed and strangled the older man.
Ray's defense attorney argued that Ray was defending himself from unwanted sexual advances.
