MIAMI (AP) — A Miami sex fetish club owner has been sentenced to 45 years in prison for strangling his former roommate.

The Miami Herald reports that 52-year-old Luis Moya was sentenced Friday. He was convicted in June of second-degree murder.

Miami police found 21-year-old Ana Rosa Moreno’s body dumped on a road last December.

Officials say Moya and Moreno had met through Craigslist, and she moved into his Kendall home. Prosecutors say Moya lied to Moreno, telling her that he was a 37-year-old wealthy Brazilian businessman. Moya actually ran the Hammer & Nails fetish club in Miami’s Wynwood area.


Prosecutors say Moya became enraged with Moreno after she moved out. He initially told police that he gave her a ride the night she disappeared but denied harming her. Surveillance video shows Moya dumping her body and driving away in her car.
