"Kai the Hitchhiker," an internet sensation from Alberta, Canada has been sentenced to 57 years in prison on Thursday for beating a man he met in Times Square to death.

Kai, whose real name is Caleb McGillvary, will have to serve at least 85% of his sentence as imposed in the state Superior Court in Union Country.

McGillvary was convicted last month of killing 73-year-old attorney Joseph Galfy at his New Jersey home in May 2013. McGillvary had been staying in Galfy's home after the two met in NYC for the first time.

The defendant claimed he beat the man in self-defense following an attempted sexual a s sault, however, the prosecutors said his statements were inconsistent, and the victim was extensively injured. Galfy was found dead in his bedroom from the beaten injuries, wearing only socks and underwear.

Weeks after Galfy's death, a worker at Starbucks in Philadelphia recognized him and was arrested subsequently at a bus station.

McGillvary initially gained fame after interviewing in an attack on a California utility worker. In the interview, he described using a hatchet to fend off a further attack on two women who were struck with a car.
