Adrian Henry was sentenced to 40 years in prison today after pleading guilty to killing his girlfriend and setting her body on fire in August 2010.
Henry’s 40-year sentence for second degree murder will be served consecutively with a 20-year sentence he is currently serving. He was on parole at the time of the killing.
22-year-old Saret Vit was set on fire and discovered in a field in North Nashville on August 12, 2010. She was burned beyond recognition, but an autopsy revealed that her cause of death was strangulation.
Henry had been the last person seen with her, and when police questioned him, he had burns on his face and hands.
