William Horman, who was found guilty last month of murder and concealing the victim's body, was sentenced to 40 years in prison Friday by Chief Judge H. Chris Ryan Jr.

"We were successful in this case with no body, no medical cause of death and no murder weapon," said La Salle County State's Attorney Brian Towne following the sentencing hearing. "I believe that is a first for any murder case in La Salle County."

Repeating what he told the jury, the prosecutor said Horman's motive was greed and his actions calculated.

Ryan sentenced Horman, 49, to a mandatory prison term of 35 years for murder and five years on the concealment charge. Towne estimated, with consideration for time served in county custody, Horman would be in his mid-to-late 80's at the end of the consecutive sentences.

Before Ryan's pronouncement, Horman, a father of three, asked the judge for mercy and leniency. However, in his statement, he was not remorseful.
