ODESSA – 75 years behind bars, that's the punishment for a Midland man convicted of murder.

An Ector County jury handed down the sentence on Monday to 21-year-old Isaac Lopez.

Last week, they found him guilty in the May 2008 hit and run death of 39-year-old Melissa Bustamante.

It took the jury a little more than two hours to deliver Lopez' punishment.

He'll be in his 50's before he's eligible for parole.
