JANESVILLE, WI (WTAQ) - A southern Wisconsin man will spend 28 years in prison for burning the body of an 18-year-old woman who answered his Internet ad for sex.

30-year-old Nathan Middleton of Evansville received a maximum sentence Wednesday. That's after he pleaded guilty in March to two Rock County felony charges of hiding and mutilating a corpse.

The incident happened last October. According to prosecutors, Middleton claimed that he had sex at his home with Aprina Paul of Fitchburg -- she died after taking drugs -- and he panicked and burned her body.

Investigators failed to prove that Middleton intentionally killed Paul. An attempted escape charge was dropped in a plea deal.

Officials said Middleton wrote his mother about a month after he was arrested, and asked her to blow up a window at the Rock County Jail so they could run away to Mexico. She never received that letter.
