Woman strangled teenage drinking buddy after posing with murder weapon on FacebookBy William Martin 12:37 PM January 21, 2018
A woman was implicated in the murder of her drinking buddy after she posted a photo on Facebook, which showed her in possession of the murder weapon, according to police in Canada.
Saskatoon police said that they have arrested 21-year-old Cheyanne Rose Antoine after being accused of killing 18-year-old Brittney Gargol.
Antoine has been charged with second-degree murder and causing an indignity to a body.
She eventually pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to 7 years in prison.
According to the police investigation, Antoine and Gargol were best friends and they often went drinking at bars.
One night, Antoine became angry and her friend and killed her.
She then dumped her body in a landfill.
When police first questioned Antoine, she said that Gargol went home with a white man and she never saw her again.
She also told police that she then went to her uncle’s house.
When police questioned Antoine’s uncle, he told police that his niece never came to his house that night.
He also revealed that Antoine told him to lie to police and say that Gargol went home from the bar with two black men.
Police knew that Antoine was lying, but for two years, investigators were unable to find evidence that she had killed her friend.
Police then found a Facebook photo, which showed Antoine and Gargol just hours before the murder.
Antoine was seen in the photo wearing the belt that was used to strangle Gargol.
The belt was found in the landfill next to Gargol’s body.
When Antoine was confronted with the evidence, she admitted to killing her friend following an argument.
