It's sentencing day for a Pembroke Pines man convicted of murdering his adoptive mother.
Gerard Lopes Belmonte faces up to life in prison in the death of Natalie Belmonte.
Prosecutors even accused Lopes of raping Belmonte after investigators found evidence that they had sex shortly before her death. The defense claims the sexual encounter was consensual.
Lopes' attorneys say they will appeal.
