LOS ANGELES – A convicted rapist who killed a 15-year-old runaway in Hollywood four days after leaving prison has been sentenced to 110 years to life behind bars.
Gilton Pitre was sentenced Wednesday for strangling Alyssa Gomez in a Sunset Boulevard motel in 2007. Her body was dumped in an alley about a mile away.
Investigators say motel video showed him putting her bedding-covered body in a car.
The 38-year-old Pitre had just been paroled after serving time on a drug charge.
Pitre was convicted in May of first-degree murder and unlawful sex with a minor.
The judge said Pitre's criminal history shows he has an "innate hatred for women" and can't be rehabilitated. Besides prison, he was ordered to pay $7,300 for his victim's burial.
