Hayward, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- A Wisconsin man will spend the rest of his life in prison for his part in a brutal murder in 2009.

30-year-old Christopher Roalson was shown no mercy for what authorities dubbed a "thrill kill" with satanic overtones.

A jury found Roalson guilty of stabbing 93-year-old Irena Roszak to death over three year ago in Raddison, Wisconsin.

Just minutes to his sentencing on Monday, he still denies taking part in the murder, blaming Austin Davis for the crime.

"I'm very sorry about what happened to Ms. Roszak and I know that she didn't deserve that but that was not the intent that night. Our intent was only to go out and commit a burglary," said Roalson at his sentencing hearing.

Burnett County Judge Kenneth Kutz didn't buy Roalson's plead for leniency.

He handed down a sentence of life in prison, with no possibility of parole or extended supervision.

Roalson will be imprisoned at the Dodge Correctional Institution.

Austin Davis pleaded guilty to being part of the murder, and has been sentenced twice.

With time already served, Davis, who was a juvenile at the time of the murder, has about five years left at the Green Bay Correctional Facility with seven years of extended supervision.
