A Henderson man has been sentenced in the death of his girlfriend. 

45-year-old Demetrius Compton was sentenced to 11 years in state prison for the murder of Brystal Chambers.

Last month, Compton entered into an Alford plea. Officials say he'll have to serve 85 percent of his sentence before he's eligible for parole.

Compton was arrested in June 2011 and charged with the death of Chambers. Her death was a homicide by strangulation.
