Today a judge was expected to be sentenced Monday an Omaha man for killing a woman who worked for him as a prostitute.

A jury convicted Reginald Briggs of manslaughter, pandering and weapons charges earlier this year.

In September 2015, Briggs killed 31-year-old Teresa Longo with a single shot to the back of the head in a vacant house near 39th and Blondo Streets. Investigators found her body two weeks later.

Briggs could serve up to 170 years in prison.
