A Texas jury sentenced pro cyclist Kaitlin “Armstrong” to 90 years of prison for the murders of Anna Moriah Wilson and her perceived romantic rival, Mo Wilson. The two had dinner together with her killer’s boyfriend on that evening.
The jury also assessed a fine of $10,000. Christine Armstrong was heard crying in court as the jury announced its decision.
The day before, the Prosecutors asked for at least forty years.
The prosecution said that Armstrong, 37 shot Wilson in the head twice and then once through the heart just minutes after Colin Strickland (a 36-year old fellow pro rider) dropped her at a friend’s apartment. After a two-week long trial, the jury found her guilty after just two hours of deliberation.
She was in Texas to run a race, but she had previously been involved with Strickland. He testified that they had no sex on the night of murder when they went swimming in Austin’s Deep Eddy Pool and then went to a bar across the street.
After the murder, questioned Armstrong about a warrant unrelated to her murder and released her. After the murder, a href=”https://www.foxnews.com/category/us/crime/police-and-law enforcement” target=”_blank”>u>police questioned/u>/a> Armstrong on an unrelated warrant and let her go.
The police captured Armstrong at Santa Teresa Beach, a popular community for expatriates. They had a receipt from a plastic surgeon’s surgery, her sister’s passport, and a list with defense attorneys.
Christine Armstrong told the jury on Thursday that her sister was a “really good person” despite being murdered.
She addressed her passport in public for the first.
She said, “I didn’t give it her so she must have stolen it.”
Fox News Digital revealed that last year, Armstrong visited Livingston Manor in New York before fleeing to Costa Rica.
Prosecutors claim that Armstrong, while on the run from the U.S., read the news. She was being tracked down by the Marshals and looked into whether she could change her fingerprints using pineapples.
Last month, Armstrong was allegedly caught after a 10-minute foot pursuit by Travis County guards.
