BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A jury found Kevin Broadway guilty for the murder of Kristin Granier.
Granier's body was found dead on September 22, 2011 behind a dumpster. She was located by a guest at the Motel 6 on Airline Highway. The coroner concluded she died from strangulation.
Investigators believe Granier was working in the area as a prostitute.
DNA evidence led investigators to Broadway. Although he admitted to having sexual intercourse with Granier, he has maintained his innocence and says he did not kill her.
A jury found Broadway guilty and sentencing has been set for September 8, 2015.
The trial was presided over by Judge Mike Erwin.
