A St. Louis man will spend the rest of his life in prison for killing a nurse and wounding a police officer and firefighter.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 24-year-old Mario Coleman was sentenced Friday to life in prison without parole for the 2009 home invasion that resulted in the killing of 34-year-old Gina Stallis. Police officer Isabella Lovadina and her then boyfriend, firefighter Nicholas Koenig, were also at the home at the time of the invasion and both were wounded.

Coleman's accomplice, LaDale Nathan Jr., was sentenced in May, also to life in prison without parole.
