Mother of murdered teen girl reacts to man's prison sentence

Kelvin Roy was escorted back to his cell, minutes after hearing he is sentenced to 80 years in prison for the murder of Alexandria Bertrand,16.

A young girl killed from a car crash February of 2014.

"Now he's been shown not only once but twice he is guilty of that it was all deliberate actions on his part," April Bertrand said, mother of victim.

Bertrand was in the car with her daughter, Lexi, moments before her life changed forever.

Roy, high on PCP, smashed into the back of Bertrand's van, causing major injuries for Lexi which resulted in her death.

Bertrand says the retrial has forced her family to relive that tragic night February 7, 2014.

"He was convicted not once, but twice of murder and he was given a harsher sentence which I feel he deserved rightfully so," Bertand said.

Orange County prosecutor Krispin Walker calls the results a victory.

Walker says the extra time is a exclamation point, and says it's always good day when justice is served.

Now a mother and her family can try and move forward, while remembering who they called, their Sunflower.

"We will continue to praise God and continue to thank our community for all the love and support that they give, and we will continue to remember Lexi in ways that we can."
