Life in Prison for La Crosse Man


A La Crosse man will spend the rest of his life in prison for killing a woman who allegedly was trying to buy crack cocaine from him.  


Izelia Golatt was sentenced yesterday after a jury convicted him on murder charges last September.  Thirty-five year old Kristen Rodgers was found dead in a La Crosse alley last March.  Prosecutors say she had called Golatt for a drug buy.  Although Rodgers did have cocaine in her system, an autopsy determined she had been strangled to death.  Golatt’s attorney had argued he died of cocaine-induced heart failure and hypothermia.
