HENRICO COUNTY, Va. — A former Henrico Marine will spend the next 30 years in prison for killing his girlfriend.

Blake Bryant was sentenced Wednesday for the second degree-murder of Samantha Quinn.

Her body was found wrapped in a shower curtain outside her Kings Crossing Townhome last September.

Bryant pleaded guilty to her murder in April and told prosecutors the two were fighting because he believed she was cheating on him.

He was given 40 years with ten suspended and is not allowed to have any contact with Quinn’s family.
