In June 2021, Dane Kallungi was arrested in New Mexico after Colorado Springs Police believed he strangled and buried Jepsey Amaga Kallungi. The arrest affidavit shows that Dane Kallungi strangled Jepsey Amaga Kallungi, and buried her body in Teller County. Her remains have still not been found.

The jury on Tuesday found Dane Kallungi guilty of first-degree murder and tampering with a human body. He will now spend the rest of his life in prison without parole.
