    A man convicted in the 2009 abduction and rape of a Southern Methodist University foreign exchange student has been sentenced to life in prison.

    A jury in Dallas last week convicted 28-year-old Arturo Arevalo. He was sentenced Monday by a judge.

    DNA evidence tied Arevalo to the attack on the now-21-year-old woman. Investigators say she was grabbed by three men while leaving a party.

    One co-defendant pleaded guilty and testified against Arevalo. The other man awaits trial.
