A 25-year-old man convicted in the death of ex-girlfriend Kajavia Globe was sentenced Thursday to between 70 and 100 years in prison, according to court officials.

Maxwell Brack was found guilty last month of second-degree murder in Globe’s death. The 24-year-old Detroit woman’s body was found Dec. 14 in a garbage bin, nude from the waist down, with a rope tied around her neck.

The 55-gallon, wheeled garbage bin was discovered behind an abandoned house in the 18500 block of Fielding near Clarita on the city’s northwest side.

Globe had been reported missing three days before she was found, and police were looking for a person — believed to be a man — who was videotaped wearing a mask while withdrawing money from Globe’s bank account.

During Brack’s preliminary examination on open murder in February, Assistant Wayne County Medical Examiner Dr. Lokman Sung said he could not determine whether the rope was used to take Globe’s life.

There were no external or internal signs of injury to the body, Sung testified before 36th District Judge Shannon Holmes.

A resident in the area where Globe’s body was found identified a man, believed to be Brack, from a police lineup as the person she saw taking the bin Globe’s body was found in to the back of the house. That woman did not identify Brack in court.
