An imprisoned sex offender has been convicted in the 1983 rape-slaying of an Eastern Michigan University student.

Forty-nine-year-old Jimmy E. Green was accused of attacking and stabbing 26-year-old Laura McBride, a nutrition student and Air Force veteran who was walking to class.

Washtenaw County Circuit Court Judge Donald Shelton found Green guilty Wednesday of felony murder, which carries a mandatory life prison term without parole.

Sentencing is Feb. 26

Shelton says he didn't believe Green's testimony that Green had consensual sex with McBride sometime before she was slain.

Twenty years after the slaying, prosecutors say DNA in the case matched Green's.

Green already is serving life for a 1995 rape.
