Long Beach Teen's Killer Sentenced To 35 Years

The man convicted of killing 18-year-old Lynda Pham will spend the next 35 years behind bars.

Dustin Ryan Berry was 17 in November of 2003. That's when police say he struck Pham on the head and robbed her as she left her family's convenience store on Pineville Road in Long Beach. He was indicted on capital murder charges, but pleaded guilty to crimes with lesser penalties.

Friday, Judge Roger Clark sentenced Berry to the maximum 35 years in prison.
