The man who killed philanthropist Jacqueline Avant was sentenced to 190 years to life in prison on Tuesday, the LA District Attorney's office said in a statement. Avant was shot and killed in her Beverly Hills home in December.
The sentencing comes one month after Aariel Maynor, 30, pleaded guilty to first-degree murder, attempted murder and possession of a firearm by a felon as well as two counts of first-degree residential burglary with person present. 
District Attorney George Gascón said in a statement Tuesday that the sentencing marked "the end of a tragic case that rocked our community."
"Given the sentence today, Mr. Maynor will be ineligible for early parole, and will spend the rest of his life in prison," he said. "This sentence and conclusion of this case also prevents a painful and lengthy process of trial for the Avant family, a process that can be traumatizing."
