    Another day of deliberations, and still no verdict in the case against a Cayucos man accused of killing his grandmother.

    36-year-old Matthew Levine could face 25 years to life in prison if the jury finds him guilty of murdering Dorothy Autrey. She was reported missing back on February 21 of last year. Levine later confessed to killing her and dumping her body off a cliff near Ragged Point.
    I hope that they find her soon.

    Dorothy Autrey: Killed in Cayucos in 2008

    Dorothy Vivian Autrey's grandson killed her in her Cayucos home in 2008, then stuffed her into a suitcase and dumped it over a guardrail north of Ragged Point. The body has never been found.

    Matthew Levine was sentenced to at least 25 years in prison for murdering his grandmother, who was 84.

    Levine told sheriff's officials he accidentally killed Autrey the night of Feb. 20, 2008, when he was high on marijuana and Robitussin-DM.

    November 2015: KSBY Investigates: Missing on the Central Coast

    Besides Kristin, there are 18 other "career missing cases" in Commander Nix's investigative files.

    "Career missing is someone who has gone missing and they stay missing," he explained.

    They include a Cayucos homicide victim named Dorothy Autrey, Hugh Harlin of Morro Bay whose wife was murdered, and several people lost at sea.

    From October 2015, from the same station: Missing: Dorothy Vivian Audrey
