Guilty Plea For Man Who Took Selfie with Dead Girlfriend
HASTINGS (AP) - A man accused of strangling his girlfriend and taking a selfie with her corpse has pleaded guilty to criminal charges in southeastern Minnesota.
Dakota County prosecutors say 29-year-old Marc Amouri Bakambia will serve a 30-year prison sentence and then face deportation to his native country of Congo. Bakambia pleaded guilty to second-degree murder Tuesday after a nine-day trial. Bakambia admitted killing 24-year-old Dorothy Redd in August 2014 after she ended their relationship.
Redd's mother found her daughter's body in her West St. Paul home. Investigators say they later found a photo on Bakambia's cellphone of him lying next to Redd's body.
