A Fairbanks man who pleaded guilty to the murder of his estranged girlfriend has been sentenced to serve 70 years in prison.
35-year-old Nyrobbie Chandler was sentenced to 65 years in the murder of 31-year-old Kaylynn Bishop. He pleaded guilty to a single count of Second Degree Murder and consolidated counts of Tampering with Physical Evidence. He will serve 5 years on the latter count as part of the plea agreement.
His lawyers had argued that Chandler had a low IQ and diminished capacity, but the judge in the case found that his actions after the crime were evidence against that.
