WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ The family of a murdered 14-year-old Kansas girl says her killer is a coward for refusing to face them at his sentencing.

Thirty-eight-year-old Adam Longoria did not attend the hearing Tuesday where he was formally sentenced to life imprisonment without parole for the August 2010 death of Alicia DeBolt. The girl's burned body was found at an asphalt plant.

Longoria also got consecutive sentences of 17 months for vehicular theft and seven months for theft.

Dawn DeBolt, the girl's stepsister, said Longoria is a coward.

The murdered girl's mother, Tamara Conrad, recounted how she had been told she could never have children and helped her husband raise his children. But at age 32, she found herself pregnant. She called Alicia her ``miracle baby.''
