A judge has sentenced a western Michigan man to life in prison for killing a 16-year-old girl who accused him of rape.

43-year-old Quinn James was sentenced Monday after being found guilty of first-degree murder in the strangulation death of Mujey Dumbuya.

Her partially clothed body was found in January 2018 in woods in Kalamazoo, about 50 miles southeast of her Grand Rapids-area home.

James was a maintenance worker at Dumbuya’s school, and she accused him of sexual assault in 2017.

Authorities say James killed the girl while free on a $100,000 cash bond in the assault case.

He was sentenced last December to 20 to 30 years in prison for third-degree criminal sexual conduct.
