COLUMBUS, Neb. (AP) _ A 31-year-old man has been given life in prison for stabbing to death a 51-year-old man in Columbus.

Eric Henry was sentenced on Tuesday by Judge Robert Steinke. In April Henry was convicted of first-degree murder for killing Steven Jorgensen at Jorgensen's home during a botched robbery in May 2013. Steinke said during the sentencing hearing that Henry ``relished this crime and the degree of violence rendered (on Jorgensen) made helpless by being bound.''
       
Two accomplices already have been imprisoned. Kimberly Henderson received a 50- to 60-year sentence, and Quentin Critser was given a 35- to 45-year sentence. They'd pleaded guilty to charges of second-degree murder.
