A judge in Mexico has sentenced a man to 38 years in prison over the 2012 murder of crime reporter Regina Martinez Perez.
Jorge Antonio Hernandez Silva was found guilty of homicide and robbery.
Regina Martinez, a correspondent for news magazine Proceso, was found beaten and strangled to death in her home in Xalapa, in eastern Veracruz state.
The prosecution says Hernandez confessed the crime, but colleagues of Ms Martinez say he was set up.
Ms Martinez had been working for the investigative news magazine Proceso for 10 years when her brothers reported finding her body in her home.
