Man gets life for killing 16-year-old girl who accused him of rape

A Michigan man was sentenced to life in prison Monday for killing a 16-year-old girl who accused him of rape.

Quinn James, 43, had been charged with sexually assaulting Mujey Dumbuya and was free on bond when he strangled her to death in January 2018, according to prosecutors.

He was convicted of first-degree murder in February for killing the teen four months before she was slated to testify in the sexual assault case.

Prosecutors said James strangled Dumbuya and tossed her partially-clothed body in the Kalamazoo wilderness, about 50 miles southeast from her Grand Rapids home.

He was a maintenance worker at Dumbuya’s school when she accused him in 2017 of sexual assault. Officials said he confessed to the sexual encounter, but claimed the incident was consensual.

James was sentenced to 20 to 30 years behind bars in the criminal sexual conduct case back in December.
