Arrested man in handcuffs with handcuffed hands behind back in prison

ELKO, Nev. (AP) — A 20-year-old Elko County man convicted of sexually assaulting and killing a Spring Creek teenager two years ago has been sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 20 years. The Elko Daily Free Press reports a jury deliberated for two hours Monday before settling on Bryce Dickey’s sentence on a first-degree murder charge in the death of 16-year-old Gabrielle “Britney” Ujlaky. The girl’s mother told Dickey at the sentencing hearing she had believed his lies about her daughter’s disappearance and death. She said she even tried to comfort him when he knew all along he had killed and raped her.
