Man gets 15 years for beating girlfriend to death


PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) – A Florida Panhandle man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for beating his girlfriend to death.

As part of a deal with Bay County proseuctors, 29-year-old Justin Davis was sentenced Monday after pleading no contest to manslaughter. The Panama City News Herald ( ) reports that Davis had previously been deemed mentally unfit to stand trial.
