A man, namely Robert Fabian, 28, pleaded guilty to the murder of his girlfriend whom he later buried in October 2016 got life imprisonment by a Central Texas jury on Wednesday, May 8.
Robert was convicted on Tuesday, May 9, of murder and evidence tampering in the death of Zuzu Verk, 21, who was a student at Sul Ross State University in Alpine, Texas.
The suspect told authorities that he got into an argument with his girlfriend the night before she disappeared.
He claimed that she left his apartment at approx. 2 a.m. However, neighbors say they heard loud noises hours later.
The dead body was found wrapped in plastic sheets in February in a shallow grave near Alpine. Officials identified Zuzu through dental records.
Another suspect Chris Estrada, a friend of Robert, was also arrested after his cellphone and credit card records were found to be linked to the purchase of the plastic sheets which were used to wrap the victim's body.
