KENOSHA CO. (WITI) — 53-year-old Javier Garcia will spend the rest of his life behind bars after his conviction in the death of 26-year-old Lisa Mezera.

Garcia was found guilty in February of first-degree intentional homicide, aggravated battery, first-degree sexual assault, false imprisonment and a misdemeanor count of theft.
