A Virginia man has been sentenced to 13 years in prison for the death of his girlfriend, 11 years ago, according to a report.

Billy Wilson Everett, 49, of Norfolk, was convicted of three charges in the Nov. 15, 2007, the death of the 26-year-old Lori Jordan of Virginia Beach, WAVY-TV reported Friday.

The associated press reported in September that the jury convicted Everett of the accidental killing of the Jordan river and the dumping of her body in a park. Her body was found in the weeks after her death.

He was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter, concealment of a corpse, and defilement of a dead body.

Prosecutors failed to convince the jury that Everett poisoned Jordan with a deadly mix of heroin, cocaine and alcohol. They had him charged with the murder.

Everett was the father of two of her three children.

Cold case detectives reopened the case in 2012, WTKR-TV reported in 2016.

Her death was initially ruled undetermined.

Everett, the parents of Frank Everett and Teressa Everett are serving five-year prison sentence for helping him get rid of the body.

Duane Goodson was sentenced to a year in prison for illegal sale of a dead body.
