It took more than a day of deliberations for jurors in Boulder County to return with a guilty verdict in the case of a man accused of killing and dismembering his girlfriend.

Adam Densmore was found guilty of first-degree murder, tampering with a human body, tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse.

According to 9 News in Denver, prosecutors argued that Adam Densmore had " an absolute hatred" for the victim, 25-year-old Ashley Mead and killed her because he wanted to keep the couple’s 1-year-old daughter in his life.

Police said Densmore killed Mead after a fight in February of 2017. Her torso was discovered two days later in a suitcase inside a dumpster at a gas station in Okmulgee, Oklahoma. The rest of her body has not been found, however, investigators believe he scattered her remains across four states.

The child was not harmed and was found with Densmore near Tulsa, Oklahoma on February 15, 2017, the day after her mother was reported missing.
