A German imposter who tried to pass as a Rockefeller family heir and was found guilty of murdering his landlord faces sentencing Thursday.
Christian Gerhartsreiter, 52, will hear his fate in a Los Angeles federal court after he lost a bid last month to delay the process.
He could end up getting life behind bars.
Gerhartsreiter was convicted in April of killing John Sohus, his California landlord, who went missing in February 1985 together with his wife Linda. His remains were found nine years later in the backyard of his home in an upscale Los Angeles neighborhood.
