US man accused of killing his roommate and drinking the man's blood has been sentenced to 20 years in prison

BARTOW (Florida) - A CENTRAL Florida man accused of killing his roommate and drinking the man's blood has been sentenced to 20 years in prison. As part of a deal with prosecutors, 43-year-old Mauricio Lopez pleaded no contest on Wednesday to second-degree murder, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and robbery with a deadly weapon. Authorities say Lopez fatally stabbed 32-year-old Macario Cruz in August 2010. Authorities say Lopez drank a cup of Cruz's blood as part of a ritual. Prosecutors say they agreed to the deal because a major witness - the victim's brother - was in Mexico and unavailable to testify. -- AP
