    I am posting this because the girl who was murdered was a long time friend of mine and she deserves justice.

    I'm so sorry for your loss, Amanda. ((hugs))

    I hope that he is busted before he crosses that border.

    Have they determined a motive yet?

    Sorry to hear about your friend. Did she know him, were they involved or was this just random? You don't have to answer if you are too upset.

    From February 2015:

    http://www.americanpress.com/news/lo...tenced-to-life

    A man who spent six years on the run after raping and murdering a Lake Charles woman in February 2008 was sentenced Friday to consecutive life sentences, plus 30 years on a burglary charge.

    Wanda Barton, 26, was stabbed 16 times and was found dead by her in-laws in the kitchen of her home near the corner of Nelson and Country Club roads...

    The neighbor who broke into her home and committed the crime, José Manuel Garcia-Guevara, 27, returned to his native Mexico after the crime and was only brought back to Calcasieu after he was placed on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list. Garcia-Guevara was returned to Calcasieu Parish in July and stood trial in January, being found guilty of second-degree murder, aggravated rape and aggravated burglary.
