BENTON HARBOR -

A Benton Harbor man will spend the rest of his life in prison for murdering his child's mother.

Isaiah Casnave pleaded guilty to the murder and has been sentenced to life behind bars.

Police say Casnave killed 24-year-old Tanita Broyles in her Benton Harbor home last April.

With his guilty plea, the rest of the counts against him, including criminal sexual conduct, were dismissed.

A week before the murder, Broyles had a personal protection order against Casnave issued.

Casnave and Broyles have a toddler together.
