LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Felix Vail has been sentenced to life in prison.

Vail was convicted in August of second-degree murder in the 1962 death of his wife, Mary Horton Vail.

The jury agreed that Felix killed Mary in 1962 and tried to make it look like a drowning accident on the Calcasieu River.

Vail is also believed to be the last person to see two other women alive - Sharon Hensley, his girlfriend, and Annette Craver Vail, his wife. The disappearances of the two women were brought up in his trial.
