Mason City man sentenced to life in prison

MASON CITY, Iowa (KTTC) -- A Mason City man was sentenced Friday to life in prison for the killing of a Mason City woman last year.

The Mason City Globe Gazette reports Aaron Harris, 36, will not get parole and the judge denied a motion for a new trial.

In May, a jury found Harris guilty of first-degree murder in the death on Sarah Winters.

She was found unresponsive in her apartment on the 400 block of North Washington on July 10, 2012. Winters was pronounced dead at a hospital.

An autopsy shows Winters was strangled.
