Man gets life in prison for murdering neighbor during Bible study

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS - A Dallas man was sentenced to life in prison on Friday for killing a neighbor he invited over for a prayer meeting.

Randy Torres had previously pleaded guilty to the 2010 murder of 55-year-old Cathy Wilder.

Police said Torres, who was 19-years-old at the time, invited Wilder over to his mobile home to pray and study the Bible with him.

One of Wilder's relatives told FOX 4 at the time that she felt bad for the teen, who lived alone in the trailer in the 2200 block of Walraven Lane near Love Field.

When she went over to pray with him, police said Torres instead took a butcher knife and stabbed the woman 33 times.
