A woman who was strangling had gasoline poured on her and set on fire. She lived for more than two months before dying. As we reported last week the prosecutors were not allowed to use her last words in court. Even without that a federal jury in Montana has found the man guilty.

Jurors on Thursday convicted the 20-year-old man, Dimarzio Swade Sanchez of murder in the first-degree. He will be sentenced March 29 and faces a mandatory life sentence.

The murder happened on the Crow Indian Reservation.
