DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Rogelio ‘Roger’ Belmonte is headed to prison for the dragging death of an elderly woman in a North Texas Wal-Mart parking lot last year.

A jury sentenced Belmonte to 60 years in prison and a $10,000 fine on Thursday afternoon.

Earlier in the week, his girlfriend testified about how two accomplices robbed 76-year-old Sabra Leavy of her purse and dragged her from a truck, running her over before fleeing from the scene in March of last year.

Belmonte pleaded guilty to first-degree murder. The jury could have sentenced him to life in prison.

Leavy died from her injuries three days after she was dragged and left on the ground of the parking lot. The woman’s family had been in court watch all of the proceedings.
