Facebook selfie helps to convict killer

Facebook

This selfie of Cheyenne Antoine and Brittney Gargol gave police the clue they needed to find Gargol's killer

Cheyenne Antoine, 21, was arrested after the police discovered the photograph, which showed her wearing a belt later found alongside 18-year-old Brittney Gargol's body.

Police were able to poke holes in Antoine's story that the pair went to the Colonial Pub and Grill after reviewing security tape evidence that showed they were never at the bar.

Though Antonine said she didn't remember strangling Gargol, she did not deny that she killed her, according to CBC.

After sentencing Antoine, Judge Marilyn Gray told her, "Honor your friend by becoming a positive member of the community".

Cops say Antoine - drunk and stoned - freaked out and strangled her friend to death.

It was while trawling Facebook that they saw Antoine wearing the murder weapon in a selfie and she became a suspect. CBC reports that Antoine did not dispute killing Gargol, but said she could not remember strangling her.

Antoine was charged with second-degree murder and was due for a preliminary hearing but instead pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of manslaughter in court Monday afternoon.
