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 (http://tinyurl.com/bsblkok ), 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.
