BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A man who pleaded guilty to stomping a woman to death at a Boise motel has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. The Idaho Statesman reports 4th District Judge Timothy Hansen sentenced Thomas Lee Herman on Tuesday for the March 5 death of 46-year-old Mamokete Folkes.

Prosecutors say Folkes had been living on the street due to mental health issues and that Herman had been released from a mental hospital about three weeks before he met Folkes. Court records say she stayed with Herman for three nights before he got mad and stomped her to death.

Deputy Ada County prosecutor George Gunn said Herman finished his drink before calling 911. At the time, Herman was on unsupervised probation for a December 2012 knife attack on another woman.
