Facebook selfie helps to convict killer

However, later the police received a tip-off that Antoine had made a drunken confession to the killing, CBC reports. Hours later, Gargol was found dead by the side of the road in Saskatchewan.

Before Antoine was condemned, Gargol's close relative gave a casualty affect explanation to the court. Gargol died a short time later at a hospital.

Antoine has now been found guilty of manslaughter thanks to the image of the pair together.

It was the same belt Antoine was seen wearing in that photograph on the last night of her friend's life. "Where are you? Haven't heard from you. Hope you made it home safe". The Facebook murder selfie was posted just 6 hours before Gargol's body was found. One man studied murdered his estranged wife when she announced on Facebook that she had separated from her husband and was looking to meet other men.

"Aweh, I miss you soo much, Bert!" Maybe you'll think twice before publically RSVPing for an event on Facebook. She was found strangled to death near a landfill with a belt near her body.

In a victim impact statement, Gargol's aunt, Jennifer Gargol, expressed her sorrow at the loss. It has since been changed by her family. After a night of drinking, the pair got into an argument.

Finally, an informant led the authorities to a friend of Cheyenne, to whom she confessed her crime the same evening. Though Antonine said she didn't remember strangling Gargol, she did not deny that she killed her, according to CBC.

She was sentenced to seven years behind bars on Monday after a joint submission request from the Crown and defence.

A plea deal between prosecutors and the defense brought the charge down to one of manslaughter.

The two women readied for a night on the town and snapped the photo before going out, prosecutor Robin Ritter told The Washington Post.

Cops say Antoine - drunk and stoned - freaked out and strangled her friend to death. "It's wrong and shouldn't have happened", Antoine wrote in a statement her lawyer read aloud in court. She claims that she doesn't actually remember the murder, but knows that she did it. Her defence noted that she had spent years in and out of Canada's foster care system, while her parents both struggled with substance abuse issues.

Her criminal record began with auto theft at age 12, two years before she reconnected with her mother, the station reported. "No doubt this young women has issues.and because of those issues she is risky". That friend dropped a dime on Antoine.

Without any real leads, police then did what any modern-day investigators would do: they did a deep dive on Facebook.

Antoine was originally charged with second-degree murder.
