Rayfan das Neves Sales, who killed American Sister Dorothy Stang on February 12, 2005, in the Brazilian region of Anapu, has been condemned to 27 years in prison.
Sales, who confessed to the crime, had already received the same sentence in 2005, but since he received a sentence of more than 20 years he had the right to appeal. The new sentencing ratifies what had been previously decided.
Sales was found guilty together with Clodoaldo Batista and Amair Feijoli da Cunha. The mastermind behind the killing, Vitalmiro Bastos de Moura, was sentenced to 30 years.
Sister Dorothy Stang was 73 at the time of her death.
