Man sentenced for murder related to escort service

LAS VEGAS -- One of the men who confessed to killing a woman who ran an escort service will spend the rest of his life in prison.

Keon Kyun Park, 22, was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole in Las Vegas District Court on Friday for the kidnapping and murder of 39-year-old Young Shil Park in Dec. 2010. The two were not related.

Park told police that he and Min Soon Chang murdered the woman. Her burned body was found dumped near Hoover Dam.

Both men worked for Park's escort service, which neighbors suspected was an illegal brothel. Park owed the men money.

Chang will go to trial in Jan. 2015.
