Judge sentences Roeder to life for killing George Tiller

Under the sentence, the state can't consider parole until Roeder is 102 years old. Even then, he'd face supervision for the rest of his life. The sentence came after Roeder and Judge Warren Wilbert sparred over Roeder's lengthy prepared statement, which the judge cut off after 40 minutes. "I'm not going to provide you with an all-night political forum," the judge said.
