DIXON (WIFR) – The man convicted of killing a 79-year-old with pieces of a vase has been sentenced to spend 90 years in prison.

34-year-old Matthew Welling was sentenced in Lee County court today. He was convicted last month of murder and home invasion in the 2012 death of Leroy Daniels.

Welling used a broken vase to slash, stab, and beat the Daniels. Prosecutors say his ID was found with other DNA evidence at the scene, leading to his arrest.
