A FORMER Hugo Boss model has been sentenced to life in prison for killing his reality TV star girlfriend.

Robert Reagan, 53, fatally stabbed Loredana Nesci during a domestic dispute at their Los Angeles, California home in July 2015.

KTLA reports he was found guilty of second-degree murder on August 25 after three days of deliberations, and was sentenced yesterday.

Reagan called police after the stabbing to report Nesci’s death, officials previously told KTLA.

The couple had a son who wasn’t at home when his mum died.

During his trial, Reagan’s lawyer told the court the ex-model acted in self-defence.

“She (Nesci) was an avid bodybuilder, and was exceptionally strong. She attacked Robert with a hunting knife in the midst of a domestic dispute,” lawyer Shephard Kopp said, according to Variety.

“While defending himself against her assault with a deadly weapon, [Reagan] tried to disarm her, and in the intense struggle that ensued she tragically suffered a fatal wound.”

Evidence presented at trial indicated the couple was in the process of separating and that Reagan wanted to avoid a custody battle.

Reagan modelled for high-end designers such as Hugo Boss Armani, Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein in the 1980s.

Nesci was a criminal defence lawyer who starred in a reality TV show, Loredana, Esq., about her legal work.

Reagan will be eligible for parole in 16 years.
