(01/14/13) - Frank Choate will spend the rest of his life in prison for the 2006 murder of 86-year-old Marie Warren.
Choate was sentenced Monday in Lapeer County.
Warren was beaten to death after a break-in at her Deerfield Township home in October 2006. Her body was found several miles from her house.
Choate was arrested and charged in 2011.
Investigators say a strand of hair gave them the DNA evidence they needed to crack the case.
