Life Sentence for Murder in Sunrise Mall Bathroom

CORPUS CHRISTI - A man convicted of a stabbing death at Sunrise Mall will spend the rest of his life in prison.

This morning, 39-year-old George Viera was sentenced to life without parole for the death of 76-year-old Donald Lenertz.

Lenertz was found dead in a bathroom back in December of 2012. Relatives said Lenertz walked the mall daily with his disabled daughter.

Police said Viera killed the man and stole his wallet. He plead guilty to capital murder earlier this year.
