By  | 

A man found guilty of first-degree murder in the death of a teenager who was found dismembered has been sentenced to life in prison.

Edward Romero tried to skip a hearing Tuesday where relatives of the victim were going to testify, but he was ordered back to court.

According to KMGH-TV ( ), family members asked why and got no response. Attorneys say they will appeal the conviction.

Romero pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity in connection with the death of 16-year-old Alicia Martinez.

Her body was found in a home in Denver in October 2010.
