A Texas man accused of killing his girlfriend, dismembering her body and the dissolution of the chemicals was sentenced to life in prison Tuesday.
Kevin Wayne Powell, of White Settlement, Texas, allegedly killed his live-in girlfriend, the 28-year-old Casey Ray Nutter, in 2015. A month before Nutter went missing, she filed serious violence against Powell, after he tried her to strangle with a wire, suffocate her with a plastic bag and her to drown in a shower, WFAA reported. Prosecutors said he killed her as retribution for the authorities.

“His abuse and her early death, is this the end of her story. She deserved better, and the jury saw fit to correct that,” the prosecutor Allenna Bangs, said in a statement, the Dallas Morning News reported.
