GADSDEN, Ala. (AP) — A 33-year-old Gadsden man has been sentenced to 119 years in prison in his mother's death.

The Gadsden Times (http://bit.ly/UOCvqh) reports Justin Denson was sentenced Thursday in the December 2009 death of his mother, Nita Denson. Authorities say an investigation showed Denson and his mother had been arguing about money before her slaying.

Denson is ordered to serve 99 years in prison for intentional murder and received two 10-year sentenced for two counts of fraudulent use of a debit or credit card.

Authorities say the man used his mother's card in Florida, Louisiana, Nevada and Colorado while he was on the run. Police used his trail of purchases to track him down and eventually arrest him in Memphis, Tenn.
