A jury has found a Dallas-area man guilty in the death of his girlfriend, who he testified died after striking her head while they had sex in the shower.
A Collin County jury found 28-year-old Jason Lowe of Richardson guilty Wednesday of murder. Lowe was sentenced to 50 years in prison with credit for time already served, according to our media partners from The Dallas Morning News.
Twenty-seven-year-old Jessie Bardwell's decomposing body was found in a rural area northeast of Dallas last year.
Her body was too decomposed for the medical examiner to determine how she died but her cause of death was listed as homicidal violence.
The latest news from around North Texas.
Lowe testified he and Bardwell took the mind-altering drug GHB before having sex in a shower, where she fell and struck her head.
Prosecutors said they didn't believe Lowe's version of events.
Evidence at trial showed her body was stored for some days in his vehicle.
