FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) -- An Allen County judge handed 39-year-old Anothony Ochs a 50-year sentence, as expected.

Ochs pleaded guilty last month in the beating death of his girlfriend, Susan Lombardi, 42, last spring.

Ochs told police he was intoxicated when he beat Lombardi in the head with a baseball bat and couldn’t remember how many times he had hit her.

For a time Lombardi clung to life until her family made the decision to take her off of life-support.
