HOUSTON - A young man has been sentenced Tuesday to life in prison for killing one of his high school classmates in Pearland.

Prosecutors said 21-year-old Hermilo Moralez beat Josh Wilkerson to death in 2010, then later dumped his body in a field and tried to burn it.

A jury found Moralez guilty of murder.
