Leonardo Drisdel has been sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole plus 150 years for murdering his friend Cassandra Kovack, according to a tweet fired off by St. Louis Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce. 

Drisdel, a former DJ for WGNU, was convicted of Kovack's murder this past May. He told police he killed her after the devil told him to do it; he'd been smoking crack prior to hearing the voice.

The Riverfront Times feature story "Dead Reckoning" reconstructed the fateful night in 2005 when Drisdel committed the shockingly brutal murder of a young woman who considered him a friend.

One slight correction about Drisdel: He wasn't a DJ at WGNU; he was one of many talk-show hosts during the Chuck Norman era. His show was called "The Human Factor", IIRC.
