A former student at Yakima's Riverside Christian School was sentenced in Virginia Tuesday to 50 years in prison for the murder of a 13-year-old girl. Prosecutors say 21-year-old David Eisenhauer was 18-years-old when he started a relationship with 13-year-old Nicole Lovell of Blacksburg Va. The two talked for months online and then met one night when police say Eisenhauer fatally stabbed her to keep the relationship quiet.
The judge on Tuesday imposed a sentence of 60 years for first-degree murder, 10 years for abduction and five years for concealing Lovell’s body.
The judge ordered that the sentences run consecutively for a total term of 75 years - with 25 to be suspended after Eisenhauer serves 50 years. Eisenhauer will be on probation for 20 years after that.
