NORWICH, CT (WFSB) -

An illegal immigrant from Haiti was sentenced for the murder of a woman in Norwich.

Jean Jacques was sentenced to 60 years in prison.

He found guilty last year of stabbing 25-year-old Casey Chadwick to death.

Her body was found in a closet in her apartment on Spaulding Street, according to police.

Jacques was never deported after being released from prison on a previous attempted murder conviction, prosecutors said.

He was found guilty in April.

Jacques faced between 25 and 60 years in prison for Chadwick's murder.
