By Erica Johnston

A 37-year-old Temple Hills man was sentenced Monday to life without parole in connection with the killing of a man found fatally shot on Interstate 95, the Maryland state police said.

Demetrius D. Lovelace was sentenced in Harford County circuit court on a charge of murder in the death of Alan Zurita, 29, of Havre de Grace, Md., the state police said.
Zurita was found on the shoulder of the interstate near Route 24, about 15 miles southwest of Havre de Grace, on April 1, 2008, according to the state police, who investigated the death.

Lovelace also was sentenced to 20 years for armed robbery, and 15 years for conspiracy to commit robbery, the state police said.

A second man also was convicted in the killing, the police said.
