(BLOOMINGTON) - 50-year-old Bruce Foster will likely spend the rest of his life in prison after being sentenced to 65 years for the stabbing death of his former girlfriend 39-year-old Angela Holder.
Foster told Monroe Circuit Judge Kenneth Todd at the time of his sentencing he was not guilty of the crime and he will appeal his murder conviction.
Police says Foster stabbed Holder 17 times on June 7, 2011, after she had broken off a relationship with him. Holder's teenage daughter found her mother's body.
A neighbor testified he had saw Foster and Holder arguing outside her apartment, then watched as Foster forced his way inside when Holder entered the front door. He heard loud thumping sounds then watched as Foster emerged from the apartment and drove off in Holder's 2002 Chrysler Concorde.
