ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A former St. Louis radio talk show host has been sentenced to life in prison in the killing of a 28-year-old woman.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Leonardo Drisdel was sentenced Friday in St. Louis Circuit Court for first-degree murder and armed criminal action.
Prosecutors said Drisdel beat, slashed and bit 28-year-old Cassandra Kovack at her home in June 2005.
Investigators have said Drisdel confessed to his wife that he took drugs with Kovack and attacked her because a voice ordered him to kill her.
Drisdel used to host "The Human Factor" show at WGNU Radio.
