FORT MADISON (AP)] -

A man convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison for the shooting death of a woman at a central Iowa shopping mall has been moved to the state's maximum security prison in Fort Madison.

The Iowa Department of Corrections says Alexander Kozak was moved to the prison last week.

A jury in April found the 23-year-old Kozak guilty for the shooting death of 20-year-old Andrea Farrington at the Coral Ridge Mall in June 2015.

Prosecutors say Farrington was shot three times while working at an Iowa Children's Museum information kiosk. Police say Kozak, who worked as a mall security guard, told officers he "snapped" after Farrington texted him to say she was breaking off their relationship.
