A Turkish court on Tuesday sentenced a man to life in prison for killing a Staten Island woman in Istanbul last year.
Ziya Tasali was arrested more than a year ago in connection with the death of 33-year-old Sarai Sierra.
The court also added eight years to his sentence for sexual assault and theft.
Sierra was found dead back in January 2013 amid Istanbul's ancient city walls, days after her family reported her missing.
The mother of two traveled to Turkey on a photography trip, but decided to go alone after a friend cancelled for financial reasons.
