Mont. man gets life in prison for ND killing

Posted: Updated:

A Montana man who told investigators that a dream led him to kidnap and kill a man in North Dakota has been sentenced to life in prison without parole.

A judge sentenced 42-year-old John Bridges, of Missoula, to life in prison without parole for the killing of Lee Edward Clay, plus an additional 20 years for kidnapping.

Bridges earlier pleaded guilty to kidnapping and killing Clay.

Clay was found dead in a van that crashed in a ditch off Interstate 94 on July 6. An officer became suspicious that Clay's injuries didn't match the severity of the crash.

Bridges met Clay while working in Bismarck. Bridges told investigators that he had a dream about Clay that made him suspicious, so he killed him.
