DETROIT - A man who admitted to killing a 16-year-old girl in 2006, sexually assaulting a woman in 2005 and slashing and stabbing two Detroit emergency medical technicians last year has been sentenced to 40 to 80 years in prison.

Michael Montgomery learned his punishment on Thursday in a Detroit courtroom. He didn't offer a statement.

Montgomery earlier pleaded guilty to charges including second-degree murder in the 2006 slaying, first-degree criminal sexual conduct in the 2005 assault and assault with intent to maim in the midnight attack last October on EMTs Kelly Adams and Alfredo Rojas.

Police were looking for Montgomery that day after DNA linked him to Dantoya White's slaying.

Adams told the court the punishment was too light, calling it "a slap in the face to all of us."
