Hartly man re-sentenced for killing elderly woman

KENT COUNTY, Del. - A Hartly man convicted of raping and killing an elderly woman in Kent County more than a decade ago has been re-sentenced.

Officials say Ambrose Sykes was re-sentenced to life without parole for strangling retired teacher Virginia Trimnell.

Sykes was originally sentenced to death row. However, because Delaware's death penalty was overturned, a new sentencing date was set.
