BARTHOLOMEW COUNTY (May 23, 2014) – A man convicted of killing his roommate learned his punishment Thursday.

A judge sentenced Ryan Klug, 37, to 60 years in prison. Klug pleaded guilty but mentally ill in April to murder charges in the November slaying of Adaobi Obih, 26. The two shared an apartment in Columbus to save on expenses.

Klug pleaded guilty but mentally ill in the case. He said he heard voices telling him to kill Obih before slashing her throat and stabbing her multiple times. After the killing, Klug left Indiana. He was later caught in the Galveston, Texas, area.

Prosecutors said Klug would receive psychiatric treatment while serving his prison sentence.
