COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - A jury has convicted a 49-year-old woman accused of participating in a deadly robbery at a Colorado Springs motel.
The Gazette reports Jeannette Silvia was found guilty Friday of first-degree murder, aggravated robbery, motor vehicle theft and other charges stemming from the Aug. 21, 2012, death of 59-year-old Michael Ramirez. She is scheduled to be sentenced Wednesday.
Prosecutors say Ramirez had paid Silvia $100 for a sex act and was summoned back to her room two days later, where he was killed in the bathroom and robbed. An autopsy determined he was strangled with a belt and suffered nonfatal stab wounds.
Silvia shared the motel room with her then-boyfriend Joseph Santos-Torres, who is awaiting trial on similar charges.
