A former medical student who was convicted of killing a Huntington Beach man was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Philong Huynh, 41, was convicted in the 2008 sexual assault and murder of 23-year-old Dane Williams.

William's body was found in a San Diego alley near Huynh's home.

Investigators got a break in the case when a Navy Corpsman contacted police claiming Huynh sexually assaulted him.

Huynh was also convicted in that attack.
